Business owners in Marble Fallscan now apply for a boost for aesthetic improvements through the Marble Falls Economic Development Corporation’s Business Improvement Grant (BIG) program.
The EDC’s BIG program fund has about $50,000 in it to reimburse business owners 20 percent on projects — up to $20,000 — involving aesthetic improvements to their businesses. Projects $5,000 and over are eligible for BIG grants.
"Let’s just start with the 20 percent and see what we get,” said EDC board member George "Butch” Kemper.
The EDC will be the sole authority in awarding BIG grants.
"I think the challenge will be to get some legs under this,” said EDC board member Steve Reitz.
In other EDC action, the board allocated a surplus of
$97,000 to fund four approved projects.
