  • City eyes options for marketing analysis

    Main Street manager Sam Burgess presented Carrollton City Council with three options for completing the market analysis at their meeting Nov. 8.
    Danville hired RKG Associates to do their market analysis at a cost of $37,500; Murray hired Buxton for $30,000. Both prices are above the $12,000 allocated thus far by city council to pay for the study.
