In other business at the meeting:

STARKSBORO — Before this year, Eric Rozendaal had never been to Brooklyn, N.Y. Now, he’s visited a dozen times — not as a tourist, but as a vendor of authentic Vermont food at an increasingly popular New York City market.
Rozendaal and his wife, Keenann, own Rockville Market Farm in Starksboro. Every weekend, he travels to “Smorgasburg,” a weekly outdoor food market held in Brooklyn. Smorgasburg hosts 75 to 100 food vendors every week at two locations in the city’s second-most populous borough.
