Jacob Garrison

Jacob Garrison was named the new executive director of Claremore Main Street this week.

Every year the city is asked to decide whether or not they want to continue their support of the Claremore Main Street program.

Once again, city leaders voted yes unanimously.

"[Claremore Main Street Director Jacob Garrison] and I talked last week, this is our annual contribution to support the Main Street operation. Jacob is coming up on one year…I think he's done an outstanding job," said City Manager Jim Thomas. "We continue to support them with their mission and goals. I have budgeted this amount for the new fiscal year."

With that, the city approved their annual contribution of $35,000.

"We greatly appreciate the support….We've had a lot of great things happen so far, a lot of great businesses and enhancements. We appreciate you again voting to support us and we always want to be very diligent with the dollars the city gives us and we will continue to do that," said Garrison.
