Weathersfield Township Trustees voted unanimously at their meeting Tuesday evening to renew their contract with the Regional Chamber for customized economic development and related services for 2019—the third consecutive year they have contracted for the services.

Under the terms of the one-year, $25,000-contract, the Chamber will provide to Weathersfield specific services that focus on economic development, government advocacy and marketing, under the leadership of Chief Operating Officer Sarah Boyarko, Director of Government and Public Affairs Nick Santucci and Vice President of Marketing Kim Calvert.

Services range from the Chamber team’s addressing ongoing corridor issues and conducting additional business retention and expansion visits with existing companies, to supporting these efforts via marketing strategy, while monitoring state and federal legislation that impacts the township’s business climate. Collectively, the services are helping to create a strategy in an effort to increase future growth opportunities.

Boyarko said, “We are pleased at the outcome of yesterday’s vote and the fact that the township sees value in the customized economic development services we offer. The partnership with the township has resulted in success and will continue to do so in 2019.”

Weathersfield Township Trustee Steven Gerberry added, “Township trustees are eager to continue to work with the Chamber for the third year. Past successes have been numerous, and our partnership has proven to be a real benefit for Weathersfield, especially as the Chamber has assisted with significant grants we have received through its research and advocacy services.”
