County Executive Marc Elrich and Council Vice President Sidney Katz are embarking on a multi-pronged joint initiative: 4Business – Benchmarking to Be the Best for Business.
The objective is to engage the local business community in a grassroots campaign to assist businesses to locate, grow and prosper in Montgomery County.
Listening sessions have been scheduled across the County to receive input from businesses about what they need to succeed, and to engage them to share their experiences in locating and growing their businesses in Montgomery County. The County is seeking feedback on what can help businesses to be successful.
