Main Street seeks new businesses for downtown



With about 85 members, Ford said the future is bright for Main Street and he expects many more to join before too long. 

"We have Neewollah coming up and I plan to have banners with sponsors names on the side of the streets, or hanging across the streets," he said. 

Such action should result in more business for said sponsors, according to Ford.

As is the case with any organization, some members of Main Street have expressed misgivings over what is done with their membership money. Ford said all membership dollars go to Main Street's operating budget and he is happy to discuss such issues with concerned members. 

"They can come in and talk to me anytime they want," said Ford. "I'd love to discuss where the money is going." 

Regardless of what companies open shop in downtown, Ford will be busy for the next few months with festivals and parades on Main Street.
