I wrote in a post the other day about the farm study approved 14-0 by the county delegation , it is important to note that the study has not been funded.
If grants and donations are not received, no study will occur. ("Delegation supports moving forward with countywide listening sessions followed by a feasibility study to determine potential uses of the current farming and forests lands, Funding for this process will be obtained through grants and donations.")
Rep. McConkey((R), who made the motion and Rep. Cordelli( R), who seconded it, have repeatedly been vocal about defunding the farm. Rep. Cordelli has stated that he did not vote to defund the farm, but against what he considered a " bloated" DPW budget, and yet the farm will close and the future beyond that is very much unknown.
A lot has happened since March, but it doesn't get us any closer to what will happen to the farm later this year when the money runs out. Will there be a cost to close the operations? Loss of jobs? What about next year?
