Description

City Council President Jane Knodell sponsors "Alternative Models for Burlington Telecom Forum" featuring Roberta MacDonald, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Cabot Creamery Cooperative and Kenneth Merritt, who led the drafting of the Vermont Benefit Corporation ("B Corp") legislation. Burlington Telecom is about to be sold. The question is, to whom -- A typical corporation or someone else? The City has received 8 bids to buy BT, representing a variety of business models. This event informs City councilors, BTAB (Burlington Telecom Advisory Board), and the general public about the benefits and costs of alternatives to the typical corporate model.

Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger Offers City Resources in response to Covid 19 Pandemic

Burlington Resource & Recovery Center: On Monday, March 23, we launched the Burlington COVID-19 Resource & Recovery Center, or RRC. The RRC's function is to provide relief to the economic disruption of COVID-19. If you are a renter worried about housing security, a business owner seeking access to federal assistance, a person experiencing homelessness who needs shelter, a Burlingtonian looking for information about City taxes and fees during this time or the federal aid that is coming, or someone looking to volunteer safely, you can get a 1-1 (remote) consult at the RRC and find many resources on the website. For more information, call (802) 755-7239 or go to the City website: https://www.burlingtonvt.gov/Resources
