Tama County Strong has taken on a whole new meaning this past few weeks.  The derecho caused damage from one side of the county to the other.  Our residents, businesses, city and county properties have all been affected.  During this difficult time, it has brought out the very best of our people.  Neighbors helping neighbors, neighbors helping total strangers, and support and resources pouring in from all kinds of places.  We are strong and resilient in Tama County Iowa.  We will build back, stronger than before.

SHOP LOCAL.   It is important we concentrate on efforts that can make an immediate impact and make certain we have not lost sight of the long-term goals.  Development is happening throughout the county and even during this challenging time we have grown the local tax base.  Small businesses are working on expansion plans and new businesses have opened. 

Every community is working hard to recover from the storm and make projects happen.  Our organization is proud to play a role in our short-term and long-term growth.  There is so much to work on and I am thrilled every day to see Tama County take a step forward.  Connectivity and collaboration are key.  I can bring enough enthusiasm to the table for all of us!

Continue to stay safe and help us move forward during this unprecedented time.  There is so much to do.  Let’s get busy everyone!
