A proposal to provide Henryetta Economic Development Authority (HEDA) members with information to help get new business was given Monday morning.
Parker Key, sales director for Buxton Company, said his firm uses information gathered from various sources to identify fun potential customers. That information would be useful in attracting new businesses to the town.
He pointed out the traffic along I-40 as well as US 75 provides an untapped sourse of potential revenue for the town.
The service would come at a cost of $50,000 per year.
HEDA members took the information under advisement but did not vote on the program.
New HEDA member Bruce Jones was sworn in at the start of the meeting. He is filling out an unexpired term that will end in 2020.
Board members approved paying $5,747.50 for engineering work on the sewer project at the 237 exit on I-40. that work would provide sewer service to the 37 acres of property owned by the city to be used for future retail development.
Also approved was $1,584 to pay half of the cost for telephone and computer work at the chamber of commerce.
