I can’t believe it’s summer already but it is. Harbor Freight is open, Dot Foods is under construction, Mohave Crossroads has a new owner. Discount Tires has announced a new store in Bullhead. Walmart on the mesa is nearing completion. In short, the recession at long last is over and our area is definitely on the rebound. It has been a long time coming but what a relief that it is now here. New significant projects are being
announced on a weekly basis so if we can find an adequate workforce we should all be
fine for the for seeable future.
The guest speakers at our May 10th dinner meeting will be Mayor Tom Brady and City Manager Toby Cotter. They will be speaking about new projects in Bullhead City, this
years proposed budget and many other important concerns for our area. This is also the opportunity for you to express any concerns you have with the City Building Department or the service you are getting from the city. This is your chance to air your desires and concerns plus be aware of changes that may impact you and your business.
Make your dinner reservations with John Caponetto now while you are thinking about it.
See you Wednesday Night.
