Economic Development Director George McCune and Community Development Coordinator Juanita McCune met with the Board to give them a weekly update of the Economic Development office. Economic Development Director George McCune informed the Board that $16,050.00 had been received verbally and around $9,000.00 has been actually received to help fund the SRS office rent and expenses in Marysville. He informed the Board that the Marshall County Partnership for Growth has not acted on the two year funding support Memorandum of Understanding. The reason is that the fund drive was only for 2012 not for 2012 and 2013 so the money received over the $10,000.00 will be refunded which equals out to be 24% to be given back to all donors. Thursday night there is a Marshall County Partnership for Growth meeting and the Partnership Board may decide to fund for two years and do another fund drive in the 2012 for 2013. The Memorandum of Understanding will have to be restructured in order for the Partnership for Growth to sign it. It was also discussed how the donations are not a charitable tax deduction.
