Local business survey helping determine communities’ needs

first_imgBroome County’s Industrial Development Agency, or more commonly known as just ‘The Agency’, is sending out a second local business survey to find out what those needs are. Duncan says more than 12-hundred businesses filled out the initial survey which helped them develop a targeted loan program. Due to coronavirus guidelines constantly shifting, the group says it made sense to them to conduct another survey. The Agency’s Executive Director Stacey Duncan said, “We know there’s a lot we don’t know, there’s a lot of uncertainty. So, I felt it was a good time to reach back out and take the temperature of our businesses and say ‘how are you doing right now, how have you managed to weather the storm over the last few months’ and ‘what are those things that we could look to become a resource for you’.”center_img The survey asks two questions; How are you doing right now, and how can the Department help you? (WBNG) — Economic Development agencies are trying to determine what the biggest needs in their communities are in the midst of the pandemic. last_img read more
