Town of Bethlehem officials voted unanimously to allow a $1,500 allotment for the county Economic Development Council. The EDC had hoped to receive $7,500 from the Town of Bethlehem, but instead will receive $6,000 less.
“My opinion, especially this year with us working on roads is that I am concerned with how tight things will be,” mayor Sandy McNab said. “I think we can use that money right here in Bethlehem.”
Council member Scott Morgan said he could not see giving more than $2,500 but later made a motion for $1,500 which was seconded by Wayne Ridgeway.
