Milton Business Unite In Chamber-Type Group

Doug Nurse / Atlanta Journal Constitution

The business community in Milton is joining together to provide networking opportunities for its members, and to promote commercial enterprises in the city.

“We don’t have an ax to grind,” said Milton Business Alliance Chairman Dale Jackson. “The city has been receptive to the interests of business when business has voiced its opinion. But business can do a better job of communicating. There isn’t a group like this here. There’s a vacuum.”

The organization is sponsoring an open meeting at 6 p.m. today [Thursday] Montana’s Bar and Grill.

Jackson said the group isn’t intended to replace the North Fulton Chamber of Commerce, but to complement it.

“We have just one city that we’re promoting,” Jackson said. “If it’s not in Milton, I’d like it to be in north Fulton. There will be overlapping memberships.”
