County shifts $10K for economic development

Allen County Commissioners decided to allocate the entire $30,000 in the economic development fund to Thrive Allen County's efforts in that area. Previously, $20,000 went to Thrive and $10,000 was reserved for other uses.

County commissioners came up with a new plan to provide a little bit more money to Thrive Allen County for economic development, but it won’t change the budget.

Commissioners will allocate $30,000 for Thrive in 2023. That’s $10,000 more than last year. The money is already in the budget, but in a different way. 

In recent years, the county has budgeted $20,000 annually for Thrive, along with $10,000 for miscellaneous economic development efforts such as to pay for fees to conferences or seminars.
