The Town of Niverville has approved a business enhancement committee to advise town council.

Mayor Myron Dyck says this new committee is a part of Niverville’s overall economic strategy for the community. He notes this has been a part of council’s plans since they started their term three and a half years ago.

"One of the very first open houses that was held by the chamber in this last term back in 2014 there were some questions that were asked in a survey and one of them was 'if there was a business advisory set up would you be interested in sitting on that board' and there was an overwhelming response, a great deal of interest."

Dyck says the business enhancement committee is going to act as an advisory group to town council. He notes it will be made up of Niverville Chamber of Commerce President Mel Buhler, Executive Director Dawn Harris, Town Councilor Chris Wiebe, and the towns Economic Development Officer Eric King. He says they will develop their own goals and objectives, set up a business mentor council, and help with the enhancement of Niverville’s Main Street District.

"When we look at our downtown district we are looking at our services, retail and otherwise that could be brought into the community to enhance that. We have had different communications with the business community as well as residents and things that they would like to see and have identified as being necessary so this business enhancement committee would then be looking to see what could be done to bring that to fruition."

Dyck says council now looks forward to sitting down with the new committee to work out the details.
