Heinzman provided an update on Chamber activities and shared that Big Rapids had been declared a “Gigabyte Community,” which puts the city on par with larger communities throughout the United States. Having such a declaration will assist Big Rapids in attracting businesses and industries, she added. The major upcoming project for the Chamber is securing a new location for its offices. A task force is looking for available property in the Big Rapids area and is close to selecting a site, she reported. Once the decision is made, the Chamber will begin a capital campaign to secure the needed funds. (Courtesy photo)
