Fareway named 2013 national top workplace

BOONE — Fareway Stores, Inc. has been named one of America's Top Workplaces by WorkplaceDynamics. Fareway was ranked No. 110 nationwide among organizations with more than 1,000 employees that participated in regional top workplaces programs.

The National Top Workplaces list was determined solely by feedback gathered through an objective employee survey. The survey was conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP. Fareway also participated in The Des Moines Register's Top Workplaces 2012 program, where it was ranked sixth.

The survey uses a proprietary set of 22 questions to rank companies. The survey data showed that employees most want to work at companies with high levels of organizational health. Companies that set a clear direction for their future, execute well, and bring real meaning to work are the healthiest.

Since 1938, Fareway has been dedicated to offering its customers a full service meat department with on-staff meat specialists providing expertise; local farm-fresh produce; low, competitive prices; remarkably clean stores; and highly personalized "to your car" carry-out service. Fareway's business is operated on the foundation that it will remain closed on Sundays in order to give our valued employees a well-deserved day of rest.

The Iowegian wants readers to think about the solicitation ordinance that will prevent groups or individuals from entering a roadway to solicit money. The Centerville City Council in June by a 5-0 vote passed the first reading of just such an ordinance. Public pressure and during a subsequent special meeting, the council voted 3-2 to table the ordinance. A second special meeting to discuss the solicitation ordinance is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 7 at City Hall. So, the question of the week is, "Do you or do you not support the ordinance to prevent solicitation of funds in city streets?"

A. I support the ordinance
B. I do not support the ordinance
