There continues to be lots of activity across many areas of our community.
Foley’s Main Street program is moving forward. Main Street state officials were in town for three days in October, evaluating and advising us on strengths and weaknesses. They were impressed with our historic downtown, and also provided suggestions on things we can do better. The newly seated Main Street Board had an opportunity to receive training. Expect to hear more from this group soon.
The Cactus Café (formerly Foley Bakery) has been sold to a group committed to restore the building so it can house a viable downtown business again.
Meanwhile, Yabba’s Wacky Snack Shack will be opening soon at the northwest corner of Hwy. 59 and Hwy. 98. They have done a wonderful job with the building remodel. We are all excited to see the building transformation and look forward to having an open business on that corner of town again.
The City Council passed the 2018/2019 budget in September. The budget calls for roughly $46 million in revenues this year, with revenues exceeding expenses by $2.6 million. We continue to see solid growth throughout the city.
