Bountiful OKs business loan
BOUNTIFUL — The Bountiful City Council approved a $175,000 loan to Timbermill Cabinets on Tuesday to help it construct a new building.
Acting as the redevelopment agency board, the city council voted unanimously.
The loan is the most recent of more than $4 million that has been lent to businesses along Main Street and in other areas targeted for redevelopment over the last several years. The vast majority of the loans have been repaid in full and on time, and officials point out that city coffers have grown due to the increased commercial tax revenue that has followed.
The city also approved on Tuesday evening a contract with architectural firm GSBS to study Main Street. The city is interested in adding bathrooms, additional parking and other amenities and is paying about $57,000 for a draft proposal.
