Due to a meeting on HUBZone Empowerment Contracting Program, Don Humphries was not able to come. Gay Baxter, President of the Somes Bar.Orleans Chamber of Commerce discussed the pre-grant proposal for Colliers that Harvey and "Don presented to the Down River Chamber. She also said the Bigfoot Scenic Byway proposal which was supposed to be in Washington DC could not be located and will be sent again.
There was a spirited discussion on the Board of Supervisors actions. The unincorporated TOT still belongs to us. Joann Rucker said there are no funds to reprint the Siskiyou County map. Associated Chamber meets December 10th for a decision on their situation. Hope was expertness that the Chamber could use the 800 number and Internet numbers if the Associate Chamber doesn't do so. Harvey suggested the Tribe do so even though they are not members of the Chamber or KCDC.
