The Washington County Economic Growth Partnership took another hit this week when the Salem City Council voted to withhold $25,000 they had budgeted for the group in 2011 at its regular meeting Monday (Dec. 13).
The city council’s move came off the heels of a similar decision made by the Washington County Council at its regular meeting on Dec. 6. At that meeting, the council decided to move money from the Growth Partnership’s line item and put it into a fund that they council controls for economic development.
