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. Most sites are zoned correctly, he said, also considering historic knowledge of use. Code Enforcement Officer and Building Inspector Ken McLaughlin will go through the zoning to look for inconsistencies.
