(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The St. Joseph Chamber of Commerce is hoping the formation of a new council will address the needs of some of the city's largest employers.

The Manufacturers Council held its fist meeting last week and was attended by around 25 people. The first meeting included information on training, legislative issues and other information.

Two separate manufacturing groups had met in the past. The chamber hopes the all-encompassing group will better serve the community.

The group will meet quarterly. The next scheduled meeting will be held at 11:45 a.m. on May 8 at the chamber office.
