More than 10 local contractor firms, including grading, equipment rental, electrical contractors, surveyors, and security contractors were directly involved in the project by providing services and materials. The project used local hardware stores, restaurants, hotels and other local businesses. Now that the project is complete, the project will continue to use a local security contractor, a local first responder for electrical issues, and a local farmer for grounds maintenance.
