The Grant County Prospectors are pleased to announce our annual Legislative Communication Forum.

The Prospectors created this Forum at the request of local Legislators for the purpose of creating an opportunity for you to have an open dialogue with them about community needs and projects. It is important for your organization to present and get your projects in the Grant County Needs and Project Notebook that Prospectors generate as a result of this Forum. Our legislators utilize this resource book throughout the Legislative session!
