Sterling Mayor Skip Lee said there are some exciting things happening locally, across the state and nationally which are all affecting Sterling and its residents.
It was announced at the Special City Council meeting Monday evening; Halo Branding Solutions recently purchased two new pieces of property. The parcels of land are near its new facility and City Manager Scott Schumard said they have eyes towards the future and possible expansion.
Mayor Skip Lee said the city needs to be looking at future jobs and what the city can do to bring them to the area. The mayor also said any new employer they hope to entice to come to Sterling needs to be a company which pays a very good wage. Lee said it does no good to simply increase the number of working poor.
Earlier this year Halo Branding Solutions moved into their new facility and doubled their workforce. According to City Manager Scott Schumard the company is looking at soon hiring even more employees.
Mayor Lee said he has heard from other companies and businesses which are looking at expansion in their future. He also hinted at the possibility of a new company coming to Sterling.
