City of Punta Gorda > Work Here > Pro-Business Leadership

PUNTA GORDA IS NOT ONLY OPEN FOR BUSINESS, BUT IT IS OPEN TO BUSINESS.

Just like in business, actions speak louder than words. In Punta Gorda, the City Council is doing more than just talking about how they support the business community. Punta Gorda has launched a multi-year campaign to attract new business to the city. The city recently underwent a total rebranding as part of an effort to raise the city’s economic profile. To paraphrase Uncle Sam, if you’re a business owner looking to relocate, Punta Gorda wants you!

Since 2012, the City Council has not raised the city’s tax rate because members of the Council understand how low taxes are important to the economic bottom line.

From expedited permitting to a willingness to grant waivers when appropriate, Punta Gorda is pro-business and we make sure we prove it every day.
