Speaking Startup: In a small town on the brink, entrepreneurs get creative

In Kimmswick, located about 25 miles downriver from St. Louis, two major festivals were canceled due to the pandemic, which account for 80% of the city budget. Mayor Phil Stang said the city will run out of money at the end of December.

(I am super happy to get this story published. I was responsible for writing the audio script and editing the main piece for the Kimmswick story in the news cycle. I want to thank everyone, especially my teammates, who spent so much time on the story.)
