Collier County Commissioner Georgia Hiller unsuccessfully tries to make a final statement following a 4-1 vote by the Collier County Commission in June 2011 to provide Arthrex Inc. with an estimated $2.2 million in economic incentive funding for two expansions in the next few years. Hiller voted against the motion, which passed after more than a dozen business and community representatives lobbied the commission to vote unanimously, saying the Arthrex expansion would boost the local economy with around 600 new jobs.
