Insight On Business the News Hour

Out to Lunch with Elizabeth Presutti of DART

Our Out to Lunch series is where we enjoy lunch and a business conversation with a thought leader and you are invited to drop in to listen. Today we were Out to Lunch at Jessie's Embers with the Chief Executive Officer of the Des Moines Regional Transit Authority, Elizabeth Presutti. In this first part we talk a bit about who she is and why she is so pumped about the Greater Des Moines Metro. We'll also cover trends in transportation, the many changes going on in the Metro and where, perhaps we are headed. Self driving vehicles also make an appearance. Join us as we go Out to Lunch with Elizabeth Presutti:

New Business Spotlight - Bins Be Clean with Rather Welch

Every time we turn around we learn some thing new. While on vacation here on beautiful Anna Maria Island we noticed a machine that was cleaning out resident trash (garbage cans) and recycling carts. A day later Rather Welch walked into the Island Coffee Haus (where it seems everybody comes by) and we struck up a conversation about the new business, Bins Be Clean. Here is that story about sustainability, a dirty job and adding value to the island lifestyle. And a question: Wouldn't this make sense even in larger communities?
