Mayor Pro Tem Nancy McFarlane's Small Business Initiative Passes Unanimously

Raleigh City Council Approves Single-Point-Of-Contact Small Business Permitting Process Proposed By Mayoral Candidate.

Mayor Pro Tem Nancy McFarlane's ( Small Business Initiative was passed unanimously by the Raleigh City Council on Sept. 6. This initiative calls for a single-point-of-contact permitting process to make the process of opening a small business in the city as accessible, simplified and hassle-free as possible.

McFarlane, who is a candidate for Raleigh mayor, started her own small business MedPro Rx, an accredited specialty infusion pharmacy that provides infusion medications and services to clients with chronic illnesses, in Raleigh in 2002. Active in the local business community, she has firsthand knowledge of the challenges small businesses owners face when it comes to launching a new business.

"Small businesses play a vital role in the growth and development of our economy," said McFarlane. "With this single-point-of-contact small business permitting process, small business owners will now be able not only to start their companies more quickly, but also to create jobs and bolster our local economy. Raleigh is open for business, and I want to do everything that I can to help small business owners succeed."


- The initiative includes the establishment of a small business office within city government, the creation of a small business commission, and the engagement of citizens and coordination of private small business assistance. This initiative was originally brought before the Raleigh City Council on June 21.
