Galena votes no to merger with Dubuque chamber

Posted:

GALENA (KWWL)-- Members of the Galena Area Chamber of Commerce made it clear they don't want to merge with Dubuque's Chamber after a Wednesday vote.

According to our coverage partners at the Dubuque Telegraph Herald, nearly half of Galena's 281 members voted. More than 90 percent voted no.

Approval of the merger needed two thirds vote to pass.

Last month, Galena chamber officials told KWWL members had expressed concerns about losing their identify and worried merging could draw some of the business away from their community.
