A committee whose focus is to help Rimbey grow and flourish economically wants some answers from local businesses and council is helping them achieve their goal.

The Rimbey Business Sector Sustainability Advisory Committee is reaching out to the businesses through a questionnaire in the Rimbey Review, which will be paid for through the town.

At its Monday meeting council approved a request by Bob Stevenson, chairman of the committee to approve the questions and to run the survey in the Review for two weeks.

The directive of the survey is to obtain feedback regarding how the Town of Rimbey can aid in attraction and retention of businesses to the community resulting in sustainable economic development.

The survey includes a question regarding what form of marketing (website, email, social media, print, trade- shows and industry shows) local businesses use for promotional purposes.

Businesses are also asked how the town could promote the business community, if they would participate with time and resources in a community marketing collaboration and what events they would like the town to develop.

Stevenson said he also plans to talk to service clubs and other organizations about the survey.

“It’s very important to get a response,” he said. “We don’t want to tell the businesses. It’s their opportunity to tell us.”

Results will be tabulated and evaluated by the committee.
