2 more Maine municipalities deemed 'business-friendly'

The Associated Press

AUGUSTA — Two more Maine municipalities have been designated as "business-friendly" by the state.

The Department of Economic and Community Development says Presque Isle and Richmond have made the grade to be certified as business-friendly communities. Twenty Maine towns and cities have earned the designation since the program was launched a little over a year ago.

Those deemed as business-friendly are given a certificate and two road signs to tout the award. They're also promoted by the state as being business-friendly.

Communities are evaluated on whether they have a business-friendly approach in terms of things like customer service, licensing and permitting, business involvement and collaboration.
