When Ben Garlich took over as mayor of Middlefield Village on January 1, 2012, he had one thing on his mind – build the economic base of this community.
"I wanted to get the Village of Middlefield back on the growth track," explains the no-nonsense Garlich, who is also employed at Dillen Products as the plant manager.
Garlich's first step as mayor was to form an Economic Development Committee (EDC) with the mandate to draft and adopt an economic development plan to guide Village growth. The committee includes village councilmen Bill Blue, Ron Wiech and residents Dave Dietrich, Dave McDowell and Dick Schill. Additional responsibilities of this committee include reviewing all matters concerning the promotion of new commercial and industrial development within the Village of Middlefield as well as the preservation and enhancement of current commercial and industrial businesses and residential properties within the Village. By March 26, less than one month since its formation, the EDC presented a draft of the document to village council, who immediately adopted the plan.
