Infrastructure Description: Expansion of the Stedman Family Dental Center will help to revitalize the main downtown business area by bringing more patients from the surrounding rural farming areas to the clinic located on the main road going through the town. The clinic will especially target the uninsured and underinsured for quality dental treatment and improve the accessibility of dental care to the general population at all income levels. Through the increase in patient numbers projected due to the expansion an additional dental assistant will be hired once construction is completed. It is estimated that throughout the construction period jobs on the project will amount ot approximately 1.5 FTE for the building trades. Removal of the septic tank, yet to be completed, will result in an added boost to the local economy.
