RESOLUTION #12,274

A RESOLUTION ELIMINATING THE

“INVESTING IN WOODBURY COUNTY” LOAN PROGRAM

WHEREAS, the “Investing in Woodbury County” Loan Program was created by Resolution #10,691 on July 20, 2010 to benefit private business owners “and in order to offer local solutions to the national economic recession”; and

WHEREAS, a goal of up to $1M in low-interest loans of 2% was established in a revolving loan fund, with current loan lengths ranging from 5-10 years; and

WHEREAS, Woodbury County appreciates the Siouxland Economic Development Corporation, which not only assists the county’s loan program with screening and all loan recommendations, but manages a much larger private loan program, and therefore Woodbury County finds its own revolving loan program to be of diminished use; and

WHEREAS, Woodbury County’s practice of being a partial lender gives no guarantee whether the low-interest loans they approve create jobs that would have otherwise already been created, or if taxpayers are comfortable with a limited number of businesses being granted loans below market rate, in some cases for business expansion rather than creation; and

WHEREAS, Woodbury County funding for economic development projects that service the public good over private interests are in high demand and will continue to be so;

NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS OF WOODBURY COUNTY, IOWA that the program created by Resolution #10,691 is eliminated; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the action taken by the Woodbury County Board of Supervisors on Feb. 24, 2015 to allocate a total of $400,000 of Local Option Sales Tax funds to the Loan Program is hereby rescinded.

BE IT SO RESOLVED this 15th day of September, 2015.
