Chamber Volunteer Week
The week of August 18 to 22, 2014 was the third Waynesville-St.
Robert Chamber of Commerce Volunteer Appreciation Week. The
Chamber would like to recognize and thank all of the volunteers
that contribute to the success of the Chamber throughout the
year as well as the businesses that support their volunteer
efforts. Each day of Volunteer Appreciation Week was dedicated
to recognizing one of the five volunteer groups that make
up the Chamber's volunteers: Chamber Ambassadors Club, Chamber
Board of Directors, Economic Development Committee, Governmental
& Military Affairs Committee, and CHOICES program presenters.
The Chamber distributed fliers to all of the local Chamber
member businesses who employ a Chamber volunteer to display
during the week. These fliers demonstrate and recognize the
business' commitment to the Chamber and the success of the
business community. Volunteer Appreciation Week culminated
with a special volunteer recognition luncheon sponsored by

I hope all had a very nice and safe Labor Day weekend. Another
month has come and gone and with the new month comes some
important news. School is back in session for the year.
I would like to wish all our students the very best of luck
in the new school year. For all of us, please be careful

The SOP has tallied all the responses to the
SPEA that used SOP's website to send e-mailed letters or
sign our petition. The SOP calculated that 4,134 citizens
submitted letters, emails, and signed the petition to the
Army Environmental Command (AEC) by the August 25 deadline.
Those citizens submitted 2,255 letters and 1,879 citizens
signed the petition. These numbers do not take into account
the emails and letters that were sent directly to the Army
by individuals. The response this year is roughly twice
the comments received by the Army from the region last year
in the 2013 PEA comment period.
My personal thanks to all our Chamber members
who took part in this great effort to assist in keeping
our business communities strong, viable and moving forward.
As I stated at our volunteer luncheon, it will continue
to take all of us, working together, to continue doing great
things for our communities and the Ozarks region.

starts at the end of this month and will arrive in Waynesville
on October 2nd. We all need to be out at the "finish

of the Run is about finding missing children. A great focus
and we need to be there to show our support. Plus, the forty
teams will be staying and shopping in our communities! A
Win-Win for us all.
This will wrap up another note for this month.
Until next time, let's all Move Forward, United.

is My Business Worth?
There are several situations where establishing a value of
your business may be important.
An accurate, up to date financial statement is only the first
step in setting the value of a business. One must thoroughly
analyze the past several years of business operations, and
how will your business project in the future. Is my business
in an industry that will be viable over the long haul?
Most people look to the Fair Market Value of a business,
defined by the Internal Revenue Service as "the price
at which the property would change hands between a willing
buyer and willing seller when the former is not under any
compulsion to buy and the latter is not under any compulsion
to sell,both parties having reasonable knowledge of relevant
In other words what a buyer and seller agree to without pressure!
There are several ways to determine a fair and equitable
price for the sale of a business. Capitalized Earning Approach,
this is the return on the investment expected by an investor.
Cash Flow Method; a method usually used when attempting to
determine how much of a loan the cash flow of the business
will support. Tangible Assets Method, this method values the
business by the tangible assets. Value of Business's Goodwill,
this is based on the reputation and expected customer loyalty.
Sometimes referred to as "clear blue sky!" and Comparison
Approach, this method uses comparable business's that have
sold to determine a value usually building and real estate
are valued this way.
If you are not sure how which way is best to value your business
contact a professional. There are professional appraisers
who can assist you to determine which approach fits your situation.
The National Association of Certified Valuation Analysts (www.nacva.com)
offers a free directory to help you find a business valuation
expert who specializes in your particular situation. I also,
recommend you check with the Pulaski County Board of Realtors
and local Real Estate Agents.

the Banks of the Roubidoux!
The hot days of summer have arrived and school
is back in session. This year is moving too quickly. Our
August City Council meeting was a busy one. Mayor pro Tem
Mike France led the meeting, as I have been very busy with
my husband's health issues.
Among the items of business were: The Council approved
the final plat for Briar Pointe subdivision. After much
discussion in committee and research by our staff, the Council
also, unanimously, voted to remove fluoride from our City
water system. The Council also set the Ad Valorem Property
Tax Rates for the City, after a public hearing and the tax
rate will increase from .5370 to .5596 per $100 assessed
valuation. A grant for a Master Plan for the Regional Airport
was supported, as this is an important aspect of the recent
SPEA study by the Army. We continue to support the growth
of our regional airport. Ralph Muxlow was reappointed as
City Counselor and Attorney.
The City's budget is 58% complete and net income is a
$248,573. Our year to date cash flow has been stable and
the City has
fund balances of over $4.3 million in reserve and restricted
The City also received our independent audit, which was
completed by KPM
CPA firm. The City received a "Clean Audit" with
no major findings.
Impacting this audit was the change in our fiscal year,
moving it to
January 1-December 31, which meant that this audit was a
audit instead of a twelve month one. Highlights of the audit
* the total net position of the City increased by $810,269.
* total liabilities of the City decreased by $2,039,628.
* the City experienced a significant flood that severely
impacted the city and the budget.
