County near decision on funding requests



March 27, 2018 - 11:00 PM

Nearly four months into the process, Allen County commissioners promised Tuesday they would decide the fate of five applicants for economic development funding by next week.

What that will be may be a mixed bag. Commissioners mentioned they might offer less than was sought or propose interest-free loans instead of grants.

Those seeking assistance are Marmaton Market, a community cooperative that means to buy and operate Stub’s Market in Moran, $100,000; Mildred Store, $20,000 for upgrades to the facility; Regional Technology Center, $100,000 to help start a wind farm technician course; Pregnancy Resource Center, $75,000 to make repairs and fund its mission; Bolling’s Meat Market, $190,000 to fund part of the cost of refitting Miller’s on Madison.
