‘Economic summit’ Tuesday in Mount Airy

January 7th, 2008 · No Comments

An “economic summit” where citizens can offer their suggestions for economic development in Mount Airy will begin at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 8, in the Olympia Restaurant on Riverside Drive at Linville Road.

City commissioners Deborah Cochran and Dean Brown set up the meeting. Both campaigned last year on promises to stimulate economic development and bring more jobs to the city. Both told local newspapers that they hope Tuesday’s meeting will generate new ideas and positive suggestions.

Anyone may attend.

The Olympia normally is closed Tuesday nights. Restaurant owner Dale Sechrist made it available without charge.

“Debbie is a longtime friend and customer,” Sechrist told The Mount Airy News. “I like the whole idea of what she’s trying to do and I have no problem with it at all. And who knows? Something good may come of it.”
