In 2012, The Ottumwa Chamber established a business recognition program entitled IMAGE-Imagine More Attractive Grounds & Exteriors. This program recognizes the efforts of businesses that demonstrate a clear and consistent desire to maintain or improve their properties and whose efforts are a model and inspiration for others to follow. The selected businesses will receive a plaque presented by the Ottumwa Mayor and Chamber Director or committee representative.
The overall goal of the IMAGE is to recognize businesses whose property exemplify and promote beautification and pride as an example for the Ottumwa Community. This committee envisions a clean and beautiful city where all businesses value and protect natural resources and take responsibility for enhancing their community environment.
This quarter’s recipients are Downtown Fitness, Firestone complete Auto Care, Ottumwa Regional Health Center’s ER and the Ottumwa Walk-In Clinic.”
