The Business Spotlight Program was created in order to recognize and showcase local area businesses who are vital to the City's growth and prosperity. Through this program, members of the community are exposed to a variety of businesses who have displayed their growth in both sales and workforce capacity, have demonstrated diversity in their workplace, have a good reputation within the community and have displayed their generosity by giving back to the community and local charitable organizations. These traits are also the basis for evaluation of nominees.
Businesses who receive the honor of being featured as one of our "Spotlights" are presented to City Council to acknowledged their strong work and generosity. Honorees receive a formal proclamation, a free scholarship to the NxLevel Micro Entrepreneur Business Class and will receive free marketing opportunities courtesy of the Office of Business Opportunities--such as free commercials or a display placed on Main Street, in the heart of downtown.
Nominated businesses are also judged on the following requirements:
*They must be in good standing with the Secretary of State's Office and the Better Business Bureau
*They must be current on city and county taxes, business license and water/sewer fees
*They must be located or operate within the city limits or be a customer of the city's water/sewer area
*They should be privately owned, have fewer than 200 employees and have at least two successful years of operation.
