Andrea Wade, the city administrative assistant, commented, “Try to plan your promotions around the festivals and sporting events ... when you know there will be a large selection of people coming into town.”
Doug Bessler, Sherman House owner, announced, “We’ve got to continue to promote Batesville for what it is. Look at the assets we have – the school system, churches, hospital, swimming pool .... We can’t lose sight of what we’ve got.”
The mayor agreed, “We’ve got a great quality of life here.”
Lamping added, “We need to collectively pull together as a community through a variety of different efforts.”
The next meeting will be Wednesday, April 9, at 5:30 p.m. at the Sherman House.
