Chamber outlines events for council
The Basehor City Council introduced a new addition to its monthly meetings Monday night -- a report from the Basehor Chamber of Commerce on the affairs of the city's primary supporter of local businesses.
Commerce president Debbie Breuer said her organization has been busy this month. Its golf tournament at Falcon Lakes saw 19 teams participate in a four-person scramble. The event raised about $4,500 and Breuer said the money would be funneled back into the city's business community in a variety of ways. The chamber also hosted ribbon-cutting ceremonies for three separate businesses in recent weeks.
Breuer also told council members of the recognition several local businesses are receiving from organizations. This month marks business appreciation month in Kansas.
During a Leavenworth Area Development lunch last week, these local businesses were selected as the city's outstanding businesses of the year: Basehor Suds Car Wash, Heartland Dental and Sunflower Broadband. At a state banquet on June 7, three other companies -- Suburban Water, Central State Emblems and Miles Excavating -- were honored as businesses "that make a difference to economic development in the state," Breuer said.
