Montgomery council supports Wheaton Costco with gas station

Montgomery Council President Nancy Floreen said in a memo that five of the nine council members support a $4 million subsidy, which would help Costco Wholesale Corp. construct a $60 million, 232,000-square-foot store in the Westfield Wheaton Shopping Center, The Washington Post reported. The store, which would fill the space formerly occupied by the Hecht's department store, may also include a 16-pump gas station if a zoning amendment backed by County Executive Isiah Leggett is approved.
