APPLE VALLEY CHAMBER NOTE:
We worked closely with a few of our Chamber partners of Burnsville, Hastings and River Heights (South St. Paul & Inver Grove Heights) and have JOINTLY DRAFTED AND SENT THIS LETTER TO THE GOVERNOR. The intent is to have the dial be shifted from businesses being the focus and saying instead that businesses have taken all the required (and unrequired) safety steps and that the general public’s personal responsibility should be the focus of educational efforts in creating and enforcing safety on the individual level. Businesses are more than ready to open up safely and effectively. Businesses and a well informed and guided public can work together to fully rebound.
