   The newly-formed Grenada Hotel-Motel and Restaurant associations plan to follow the advice of a state senator and amend their bylaws to better suit the needs of their members.
   Sen. Lydia Chassaniol, who represents District 14, led a meeting Monday at the Grenada Area Chamber of Commerce, where members of the two organizations voiced grievances, shared ideas and received some pointers on parliamentary procedure.
   “I want to hear your concerns, and if I can be helpful in any way, please let me know,” said Chassaniol at the opening of the meeting. “If you need a hammer, I’ve got it. I’ll be glad to call the Attorney General if you believe something unethical is going on,” said Chassaniol.
   Those representing the Hotel-Motel association included personnel from Comfort Inn and Suites, America’s Best Value Inn and Hampton Inn and Suites.
   Those representing the Restaurant Association included the Sunflower Cafe, Pap’s, Jake and Rip’s, Pizza Inn, Applebee’s, the Clubhouse Restaurant and Domino’s Pizza.
