The #2 news story of 2020 in the Tri-County News area was the announcement of a 70,000 square foot expansion at M-B Companies in Chilton.

Construction was well under way by year's end. Action by the Chilton Common Council to create a Tax Increment District also aided the M-B project and was reported on in the Tri-County News.

A ground breaking was held but was not open to the public because of spiking COVID-19 numbers at the time.

Check back Thursday for the #1 story of the year or check out the Jan. 7 issue of the Tri-County News.
