The Culver Town Council reviewed eight applications for the town’s Small Business Utility Debt Relief program.
Town Manager Jonathan Leist said the requests totaled $4,632.27. Leist explained that the business owners could apply for a maximum $1,500 or whatever the total utility invoices were for a two month period. If the invoices were less than $1,500, than that would be the maximum relief granted.
The guidelines were similar to the Small Business Grant Program where nearly $150,000 was awarded to small businesses to help with payroll, rent or mortgage relief due to the effect of COVID-19.
The town council members approved the application amount as presented.
