City administrator Roger Holter reported to Marion Economic Development on Tuesday that renovations on 12 out of 20 apartments are complete at September I, and that Victory Plaza is ready to begin pouring pads for duplexes. Holter said he hopes the duplexes will be filled with about one-half current Marion residents and half people coming from out of town.
Work on Subway is continuing to progress, Greg Carlson said, and Holter said Ace Hardware is in the process of hiring.
Holter gave information about businesses that could come to town. Todd Heitschmidt said he hoped to turn more attention to local entrepreneurs and expanding existing local businesses. He noted that MEDI has “entrepreneurship community” funds it can use to help start-ups or expansions.
