The Small Business Advisory Committee was established by City Council on March 1, 2021 in an effort to discuss and address issues impacting small businesses and how the City can serve as a liaison to them.
The Committee consists of 15 members, including three small-business owners whose businesses are located in each of the city's four council districts. There will also be three resident members who can live in any part of the city.
The city is defining the term "small business" according to the Small Business Administration's size standards, and franchise owners are allowed to serve. The Committee started meeting in August 2021, and their recommendations and work will be available on this page.
The Committee has assisted the City in hosting two very successful MCTX job fairs, two small business networking mixers, and a four-part workshop series for small business owners.
