Decatur – Local businesses and city leaders join forces today at the annual Greater Decatur Chamber of Commerce Business Expo.
City leaders held a ribbon cutting ceremony this morning in the Civic Center at the State of the City Breakfast. Mayor Mike Mcelroy addressed the crowd with pride, saying there are a lot of good things happening in our community. He also said that Decatur is a different city today, with people willing to take action on plans necessary for growth.
"I believe it's because there's a renewed sense of support for wanting to make our city better. A strong desire to make things happen, not just to talk about it and take action. I can feel renewed sense of pride, teamwork and commitment in getting things done."
The taste of Decatur is going on now until 1:30 and then until 3. You can check out what Decatur Businesses have to offer.
