ELLSWORTH — The City Council Monday voted to spend $9,012 on marketing materials to attract new business and retain existing businesses.
Janet Toth, the city’s community development coordinator, said the packets will contain information about Ellsworth and the areas it has for development of new businesses, including downtown, the business park, the industrial park and the Bucksport Road.
“They’ll be used to advertise the city as the place to be for businesses, to provide information to businesses we do have here and wish to keep and grow and as an overall packet of information on Ellsworth,” she said.
The council voted to sole-source the project to Studio 3 on Main Street at Toth’s request.
The cost of design is lower because Studio 3 already has a history of the project and photos, Toth said.
“In working with them, we are in good hands,” she said.
