EDC Board approves funding support for three projects

The Mount Vernon Economic Development Board approved funding support totaling between $86,000 and $106,000 for three local development projects following public hearings at a special called session of the board Monday evening, December 18.

The three projects involve assistance in funding the World Amateur Doubles Disc Golf Tournament, jobs incentives program for The Holbrook and The Chophouse on Bankhead, and a separate existing business structure grant program for the renovations at the building at 102 E. Main St. where The Chophouse is to be located. See the December 21 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald for details about these projects.
