This is the final week for the online survey being conducted by Main Street Charles City as part of a comprehensive market study and strategies process. What shopping and dining options do you enjoy and take advantage of in Charles City – and what is not currently offered that you would like to have? Now is your chance to provide valuable input to assist in developing business development and retention strategies in the community! The survey is confidential and should not take more than a few minutes.
