MILLBROOK — On Tuesday, June 11, the Village Board met and reopened a public hearing on zoning maps. This is an ongoing process and the hearing will remain open until the process is complete.

Mayor Rodney Brown has stated that there are no zoning changes. For instance, the bakery (now closed), is in a place allowed for that particular business.
