A strong business community is vital to the health of our city. To help familiarize business prospects with the people and organizations that can help them get established a New Business Guide has been created. It provides contact information for City departments, utility providers, business assistance programs and other valuable resources. Copies are available online or via City departments, the Marion Chamber and MEDCO.

From securing funds to finding a location, these groups are here to help your business dreams become a reality. The following pages identify the offices and organizations that specialize in business assistance. The types of assistance can range from counseling and financing to job training, networking and referrals.
