Purpose is to get new business to the area
by Derek Pope
In a move to help bring new businesses to Bethany, village officials this month approved a public request to form a new planning committee made up of local residents.
The committee, when formed, would be tasked with reaching out to new businesses, as well as determining potential locations and properties for commercial and industrial establishments wishing to open in Bethany. Similar to Bethany’s now well-established TIF committee, members of the group would be appointed rather than elected and would submit their consensus opinions as documented proposals for the village board to consider—the committee would be unable to pass any resolutions on its own.
