The Hamiota Economic Development Corporation is an independent service funded by the Hamiota Municipality.
The Board of Directors consist of two councillors and citizens appointed by the Council of the Hamiota Municipality. HEDC meets once a month on the second Tuesday at 7:00 a.m. HEDC Board of Directors are: Mayor Larry Oakden, Councilor Kerri Wilson, Ron Knight, Carol Madsen, David Rawlings, Ken Kirk, Riley Smith and Lisa Hamilton. The Hamiota Economic Development Officer is Nancy Smith. CAO Tristan Urquhart also attends the meetings.
The role of HEDC is to diversify and expand the local economy, increase the tax base and to also increase the number of local job opportunities.
HEDC hosted a community brainstorming evening on Wednesday, March 13 from 6 p.m.-8 p.m. with over 50 people in attendance sharing their ideas to make Hamiota move forward in a positive direction.
HEDC hosted the Hamiota Trade Show on April 20 from 10:00 a.m. -4:00 p.m. Booths filled the curling side of the arena. The Class of 2019 served lunch and made $700.00 and the silver collection at the door brought in $831.30 which HEDC donated to the Hamiota Community Foundation. Many visitors came through the doors and viewed the booths that were set up through the arena. The booths looked amazing and a very positive event for the community.
HEDC had the electronic sign erected in August, 2018 on the corner of Highway 21 and Maple Ave. If there is an event you’d like up on the sign, please notify Nancy firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is a current incentive that HEDC is offering to individuals that build or move a new home in the north subdivision; contact the office for more information.
The EDO attends meetings with: education stakeholders, health stakeholders, and Tourism Westman quarterly throughout the year. Hours of the EDO are generally 8:30-12:30 Monday, Tuesday and 8:30-4:30 Wednesday and Thursday.
