Small Business Bulletin Board

On October 22, 2018, Town Council adopted Resolution 20 supporting small businesses in our community and encouraging consumers to shop at small, local, independently-owned busineses - recognizing the contributions they make to our local economy.

To further show our appreciation for small, locally-owned and operted businesses in the Town of McCandless, we invite these businesses to submit information to administration@townofmccandless.org about who they are and what distinguishes them or what unique features they offer to Town residents. We especially want to encourage holiday shoppers to patronize women and minority-owned small businesses including those who do not have a store front to showcase their products to promote economic development.
