Video: Middlebury says ‘yes’ to business fund
Leading up to this year’s Middlebury town meeting, one of the most hotly debated items on the agenda was a business development fund aimed at attracting new businesses. But after a lengthy discussion at town meeting, voters were decisive, voting 125-64 in favor of the fund.
Spearheaded by the Better Middlebury Partnership, the fund was proposed last year following a research project by Middlebury College intern Ryan Kim, who was present at Monday’s gathering.
