Food hub resolution tabled

Edwards explained that she had seen a presentation about the proposed food hub at the Mid-Hudson Regional Economic Development Council. She said, “I believe this legislature deserves a presentation… I think that any time we’re asked to appropriate taxpayers’ money to the tune of $110,000, we deserve a budget breakdown.”

Vetter said she believed in the idea of a food hub, but she had concerns about its proposed location and the cost.

Sorensen said, “I support the concept of the food hub. I think there are alternative locations and alternative approaches that we can explore rather than just writing a check for $110,000, and I’d like the opportunity to do that. I think we could do that rather quickly over the next month or two.”
