Original Story, May 16: Despite appearing in trouble when several council members said they opposed giving $4 million over two years to Westfield for construction of a new Costco at the Wheaton mall, the subsidy passed Montgomery County Council by a vote of 6 to 3.
Wheaton Patch will update tomorrow with more on the council's vote.
This story has been updated to clarify the vote was a motion to remove the Costco subsidy from the Economic Development Fund.
