‘Made in West U’ – City Launches Online Business Directory

January 10, 2012

The City of West U has launched an online business directory to recognize local businesses, churches and civic organizations.

The new directory went live last week and features 140 businesses and organizations.

City Manager Michael Ross said the goal of the directory is to promote West U businesses and to let residents know that what they may need is in West U.

Councilwoman Joan Johnson came up with the idea and she said a lot of times she wants to buy something and doesn’t realize that what she may need is right here in West U.

Johnson said it’s like “Made in America,” but “Made in West U.”

The city also receives a portion of the businesses sales tax and Johnson said they wanted a way to support them.

Both Ross and Johnson credited Executive Assistant Rachelle Moody for the work she did in creating the directory.
