The Economic Development Commissions mission is to assist and encourage both existing and potential new businesses.  The Commission is guided by the belief that the business community should be compatible with our rural character.  We further seek to expand the tax base and provide residents with needed services and local employment.

The Commission meets at 7:30 P.M. in the Town Office Building on the fourth Wednesday of each month, except in November and December.
