“A New Way of Doing Business”

City of Bainbridge Island LogoBBC Members! In the BBC tradition of “a new way to connect” — this Friday, March 26, 2010, at 8:00 AM, Interim Deputy City Manager Stan McNutt and City Council member  Barry Peters, will be giving a short, informational presentation regarding the Bainbridge City Governments program A New Way of Doing Business.Barry Peters City Council Bainbridge Island

In the past few months, the City Council has been working with Barry Peters and Stan McNutt on an intensive Governance Review process.  Through this process, the Council has done an review and rebuild of the policies, procedures, and guidelines that create the framework for the City Council/Manager form of government.  Stan and Barry will update us on this important process and its result — a new way of doing business for our City government!

The new level of teamwork that is being realized — both within the Council and between Council, staff, and community — has opened the way for the City to serve as a facilitator for innovations like the Google Broadband initiative and other economic opportunities for the island.  Stan and Barry will talk about some of these new initiatives and address your questions about how the City can help support sustainable business development on Bainbridge Island.

This Friday’s BBC will be a great opportunity to ask those tough questions about how home-based or entrepreneurial businesses, without “brick and mortar” locations, fit into the vision of the new city governance.

So dust off those questions you’ve been saving and connect with Stan McNutt and Barry Peters this Friday!

We will see you all for that morning cup of BBC!
