Ontario City Council met Thursday night for their regular council meeting. The Ontario Growth Corporation presented a video displaying the positive impact of their organization in our area. Their goal is to promote new businesses in Ontario and to bring business to our town as well.

Mayor Randy Hutchinson has been working hand-in-hand with them, and says it's a great step in the right direction.  "We have a lot of exciting things going on here. The Ontario Growth Corporation gave their update and the website is up and running. People who want to re-locate here, they have a website they can go to that's strictly Ontario business."

A new hotel is also in the works and the location couldn't be better.  The mayor says "I think it's a great move. They'll be located on the east side of Ferguson road. It'll start as an extended stay hotel. "

Council also approved a reimbursement to Emerson Process Management for $147,000.  The city overbilled Emerson that much over the last couple of years.  Hutchinson says the error was the result of an incorrect water meter reading.  "There was an issue with the meter for a period of time, and the city has agreed to reimburse them."
