DNR Appoints Small Business Ombudsman
The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has appointed Eileen Pierce as the Small Business Ombudsman. Ms. Pierce will act as a liaison between the DNR and small businesses providing information and recommendations and in helping facilitate resolutions of disputes. In keeping with the commitment to make Wisconsin open for business, the Governor has asked state agencies to examine existing rules and their impact on small businesses. In one of her first duties, Ms. Pierce will begin working on this initiative. Public input is vital to the success of this project and the DNR is soliciting input through an online survey. You can log onto the DNR’s website now through May 31s to complete the survey at http://dnr.wi.gov/business/RulesReview.html.
