If you are a business in Huron County, look out for your BR&E survey package in the mail!
Survey Support Volunteer’s are connecting with businesses over the phone, before you receive the survey package to inform you of the incoming survey, speak on the importance of completing the survey, and to offer their assistance with the survey as needed. The phone calls and mail outs are starting now and continuing until November, 2021.
Business respondents will have the opportunity to communicate any urgent business concerns and/or opportunities to their assigned Survey Support Volunteer, who will then relay that concern or opportunity to the Project Coordinator to be triaged by the Business Supports Team, comprised of Huron Economic Development staff. The appropriate member of the Business Supports Team will then connect with the business owner directly to address their concern and/or opportunity. The surveying phase of the Huron BR&E Project will continue to the end of November of 2021, at which time analysis of the data can begin.
