Corey Schmidt, city manager and Downtown Development Authority director, updated the DDA on the progress of the downtown district’s light-pole banner project that will advertise the city.

To date, 14 business owners have purchased the banners, bringing the DDA to its goal of $1,500.

Narda Murphy, DDA vice chair, said “What is our strategy to follow up the letter?”, referring to the letter campaign sent in February asking for participation.

“We have a lot of light poles to fill,” said Murphy. “I don’t think there’s going to be a lack of light poles to put someone’s name on.”

The next DDA meeting is scheduled for March 19, meetings are held on the third Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m.
