Allen County commissioners granted two of five applicants economic development assistance Tuesday, and then disbanded the committee recently formed to review applications.
To date, the committee had rejected all applications.
The Regional Technology Center outside of LaHarpe was awarded a $100,000 grant to help start a program to train wind farm technicians. Commissioners also provided $100,000 to match awards to the Moran Market cooperative. The Moran group has attracted grants totaling $75,000 and more than $25,000 in private contributions.
