BRONSON –Bronson Town Council members got a visit from the new president of the Greater Bronson Area Chamber of Commerce –Cameron Asbell –at Monday night's meeting.

Asbell explained how the chamber is reorganizing and how it would like to be the "right hand to Town Council."

Asbell said the focus is on building up Bronson's economic base.

"We're working on grants for economic development," Asbell said. "We need a current audit for that to happen."

That has been a sore spot for Bronson, which has been playing catch-up in that area ever since old mayor Jamie Griffen was in power.

Current Mayor Franklin Schuler said the 2002-03 audit was done, but that 2003-04, 2004-05 and 2005-06 are still needed.

Schuler said the urgency level has gone up a notch.

"We're going to have (engineering consultant Frank) Durabi and (Town Clerk) Donna (Conquest) meet with them and give them a kick," Schuler said.

Working on those audits is Purvis Gray out of Gainesville.
