Chippewa County Economic Development Corporation (CCEDC) hosted the Wisconsin Department of Revenue (DOR) Secretary Richard Chandler in Chippewa County on March 1, 2016.
CCEDC began the visit with a Round Table Discussion Luncheon which was hosted by Mule Hide Manufacturing in Cornell. During the lunch event the Secretary had the opportunity to share with the 20+ businesses represented news on the objectives of the department, their progress and future plans to implement good tax policy, and policies via the DOR that promote job growth. During the entire event attendees were able to have open conversation with the Secretary. After the luncheon attendees were invited for a tour of the Mule Hide facility- many attendees, including the Secretary, stayed for the tour and got to experience first-hand the process of producing paper goods for the construction industry.
Following the event the Chippewa Valley Electric Cooperative had opened their doors to provide the Secretary, CCEDC, and several board members for a tour of their recently opened and expanded location in Cornell.
CCEDC would like to thank the Chippewa County businesses that opened their doors to host the Secretary and the CCEDC.
