Chamber Minute 04/29/2024

In for another Chamber minute, it’s Rosey. May has arrived, and that means most of us will be getting our ballots this week, some important things are on the ballot this year, The Chamber is supporting the Public Safety Levy and hopes the community will too. We NEED a SAFE place to call our own and we NEED a solid Public Safety system, now more than ever. Crime is on the rise, and we know we cannot leave things as they currently are. If Coos County doesn’t pass the jail levy, then the consequences will cause budget cuts all across Coos County making things much worse than they are currently.

The Bay Area Chamber of Commerce works on Legislative issues that affect our businesses in Coos Bay, North Bend, and Charleston, CRIME always affects businesses negatively, and we know we need the funding to continue this fight. Please support the Public Safety Levy 6-213. On another note we also need to clean up Coos County in other ways, Tourist Season is coming up and we need to clean up Highway 101, Volunteers will be gathering on Saturday, May 4th for the Bay Area Brigade’s annual clean up . We will start out at the North Bend Fire Station at 8 am. Coffee and Donuts are provided by Yellow Cab Taxi. There will be Three teams to join, the Pirates, the Bulldogs, or the Lakers. Then we will finish up at Coos Bay Fire Station at 11:30 am Lunch is provided by NW Natural and North Bend Lanes Back Alley Pub, and Kiwana’s will be there to cook up hotdogs and cheeseburgers for everyone! Of course, the coveted Trash Trophy will be awarded to the winning team. We hope to see you at the NB Fire Station on Saturday the 4th!
