Wed, 17 Nov 2021 06:05:01 EST

Rogers City Council members spent a part of their meeting Tuesday reviewing a proposed budget for the Michigan Main Street Program.

As previously reported, the City was recently selected as one of three Michigan Economic Development (MEDC) communities, getting five years of intensive technical assistance. There will be a focus on revitalization strategies to attract new residents, business investments, economic growth and job creation.

The five year budget projection starting in 2022 varies each year, ranging between 1-hundred 5 and 1-hundred 13 thousand dollars, with a director salary starting out at 77-thousand in wages and benefits. That person would serve as a liaison between the DDA, city, and business owners along with state officials.

The city will receive federal American Recovery Plan Act (ARPA) dollars amounting to over 2-hundred 77 thousand dollars. The council approved reserving 20-thousand of that for each of five years for the Main Street program budget, coupled with DDA tax Increment funds and donations.
