The Town of Bennett created the Benefits of Bennett (B.O.B), program to support existing businesses that are making updates to their property and in turn create a vibrant commercial environment in Bennett. The 50% reimbursement matches public and private investment in Bennett and is approved administratively. The program is administered on a first-come, first-serve basis in an amount up to $5,000 per business and not to exceed $15,000 per building per year. The B.O.B, seeks to bring new opportunity to existing buildings thus improving economic vitality for all businesses and the Town as a whole.
