In 2001, a local boy started the website eBaumsWorld.com, and it took off. Eric Bauman and his father, Neil, made millions on the site and reinvested some of that money into renovating Main Street in the Village of Webster.

After falling behind on their bills Monroe County pulled the tax breaks that the Bauman’s were receiving for the project.

 

Webster Town Supervisor Ron Nesbitt explains why the funding was pulled and where the project will go from here.
