A press release from the city of Fremont:
Fremont has always valued its small businesses. That’s why the City has created a new point of contact for everything small-business related.
Enter Jackie Hall, the City’s new Small Business Ally.
Jackie will be serving as the City’s Development Services “concierge.” With more than 17 years of experience serving the City of Fremont, she is certainly an excellent fit for the position.
In her new role as the City’s Small Business Ally, Jackie will assist small businesses with the following:
• Facilitating project reviews and permits
• Helping businesses with internal City/outside agency contacts and resources
• Tailoring and streamlining permit processes
• Coordinating with the City’s Office of Economic Development, the Fremont Chamber of Commerce and other business organizations
The Small Business Ally programs will commence with a series of meetings and events hosted by the City and the Fremont Chamber of Commerce. These meetings will be with the Irvington, Centerville, Niles, Mission San Jose, Warm Springs and other Business Associations to introduce both Jackie and the program. Feel free to share any suggestions and ideas on how to best meet the needs of businesses.
FYI … Hall’s new position will pay her $87,500 per year, according to Fremont spokeswoman Cheryl Golden. Her previous annual salary was $81,780, Golden said.
