Chamber asking members for input

The Fort Frances Chamber of Commerce is asking its members what the top issues impacting their businesses are with a new policy issues survey.

“Something we do regularly throughout the year, each year, is send out something to our membership asking for any issues or concerns that they have,” Chamber manager Dawn Booth noted yesterday.
