The Berthoud Area Resource Team (BERT) held their monthly meeting on Monday, April 19.
The Business Appreciation Breakfast was first on the agenda. The breakfast is planned for Saturday, May 15 at Brookside Gardens, with catering by Origins Catering Company of Berthoud. Becky Justice-Hemmann has collected five donations of $500 each to help with the event and Larry Bebo of Brookside Gardens has given the group a “healthy discount” on the site costs. The Town of Berthoud will pay the catering costs.
Mayor Tom Patterson and Town Administrator Michael Hart will address the group, and then introduce the Town of Berthoud Trustees, the sponsors and the donors. After breakfast, each sponsor will talk about their business for five minutes, followed by “Questions and Answers” with the Trustees and Town Administrator Hart.
The breakfast and event is free to all Berthoud businesses. An invitation is forthcoming.
Deputy Town Clerk Linda Higuera spoke to the group about the new Town Website, which is patterned after The City of Westminster’s site. She has been working with Fred’s Used Websites to create the website and is planning to go live with it on May 1.
Only the part of the website assigned to the BERT was discussed, particularly the Berthoud Business Directory where Berthoud business owners may register their businesses and provide defining information.
The group will hold a separate meeting later this week to further define the purpose of the business directory and how it should be presented to the Town Board.
