Ron Mozer feels like “the new kid on the block.”

The owner of Crystalline Technologies opened his business at Eastgate 11 in 2008. The company does satellite telemetry for the oil and gas industry, with customers from New York to Tennessee as well as overseas.

Now a Monessen resident as well, Mozer is hoping to pro-actively improve the business community and climate.

Mozer is organizing a Monessen Business Owners Meeting noon Thursday at Mon Net Café, 11 Eastgate.

He said at the session, expected to last 30 to 45 minutes, business owners will be encouraged to discuss challenges such as:

• Parking meters

• Abandoned buildings

• Revitalization of Monessen

• Bringing business back to Monessen when the John K. Tener Bridge opens next month

• Improving roads.

Mozer said the meeting is not a candidates' forum, but ideas and concerns would ultimately be addressed with city leaders. Mozer said he has also reached out to the Monessen Chamber of Commerce.

“My goal is to see if the Monessen business people have a voice,” Mozer said. “As constituents, this is what we believe needs to be done to improve the city and especially the business community. As a group of business people, we have a stronger voice, especially if consolidated into a strong and concise message.”

Mozer said he is interested in what ideas business owners have for the downtown community.
