Irene recovery officers hiredFebruary 23,2013BRATTLEBORO — The Brattleboro Development Credit Corporation announced Friday that two people have been hired to fill Southern Vermont’s two federally funded flood recovery officer positions.
Anthony Summers, of Spokane, Wash., and Wendy Rea Woods, of Dorset, will help public officials and economic development organizations work effectively with businesses and encourage development of collaborations between the public and private sectors. Their high-level goals will include economic restructuring strategies, village and downtown revitalization, and business resiliency in the wake of Tropical Storm Irene.
The positions were funded by $472,000 in disaster recovery funds from the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration to the Windham Regional Commission and the Bennington County Regional Commission. Each disaster recovery investment is intended to support a community’s long-term recovery, spur job creation, leverage private investment and promote disaster resiliency.
Summers and Woods will start in March. Summers will work in Brattleboro while Woods will be in Wilmington. They can be best reached by email at email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
More information on the project can be obtained at www.windhamregional.org or www.bcrcvt.com.
