Great Places Update: $2M appropriated

Thank you to the Iowa Legislators for appropriating $2M towards Iowa Great Places for the next fiscal year. In order to gain access to the funds, Iowa Attorney General’s grant agreement outlines a legal need for increased governmental collaboration (an economic principle also critical in rural Iowa long-term capacity building.) For Tama County that means that over the next three years working towards 1) Wieting Opera House trustees formalizing the relationship to the city of Toledo, and 2) Meskwaki formalizing the relationship with the government entities in the surrounding area.

Other stakeholders have an established 28E Tama County Economic Development Commission partnership to facilitate the necessary structure for progress. Also thank you to the financiers for 17 Great Places signs @ $60 each who have stepped forward to date:

0 – Chelsea

2 – Garwin
