The Business Council works with governments and communities to resolve issues by doing research, tracking public policy and participating in public hearings.
Danville has supported the Business Council and the Vision 2010 project since 1998 with funding of $10,000 per year until 2005-06 when the contribution was increased to $25,000. This was in part because the organization lost the support of the Irvine Foundation.
This year the Business Council is focusing on responding to the needs of home-based business executives in the Tri-Valley, by marketing businesses, creating a Web site, and providing networking opportunities. Other focuses will be workforce housing and traffic congestion.
