Group Hopes to Testify Against Proposed Restriction at U.S. Port of Entry 06 Nov 17

They are headed to the border tonight.

A group of area businesses organized by the local Chamber of Commerce, will testify against a proposed restriction in at the US Port of Entry on Highway #59 at Lancaster.

With the fight to preserve hours at the international border and the recently announced closing of Kmart, local government leaders are considering their next step when it comes to Economic Development and Thief River Falls.

That includes the job of Economic Development Director, formerly held by Christine Anderson, who officially left the position October 20th. 

The three way partnership that funded that job unraveled over the past year, with an unfavorable response to the creation of an Economic Development Authority, which would have permanently funded the position through an additional tax levy.
