At the regular meeting of the Flour Bluff Business Association on June 8, 2016, County Commissioners Brent Chesney and Mike Pusley presented the association with two checks totaling $3500. FBBA President Melanie Hambrick along with other FBBA board members graciously accepted the checks on behalf of the members.
Commissioner Chesney explained that each commissioner has funds that can be used to assist groups like the FBBA. “We really appreciate the Flour Bluff Business Association and all the hard work its members do, especially in the way of economic development for the Flour Bluff area.” He explained that Judge Loyd Neal also sent his check for $1000, bringing the total contribution from the county to $4500. “We just want to show you how strongly we feel about what you do and what an impact you have on this community.”
“We want to offer you some money to help you with the things that you do that are so important,” said Chesney, referencing the upcoming Flour Fest set for September 17, 2016.
Commissioner Pusley added, “We have a little money that we give out each year to different organizations to help stimulate the economy in our county. With all the great things that are going on out here in Flour Bluff, it’s hard not to recognize that and help spur it forward.” He went on to thank current and past boards and members for their work in the area.
Jeff Rank thanked the commissioners by awarding them with Keep It in the Bluff t-shirts.
