Madison County Supervisors have agreed to borrow up to $9 million to help fund four country projects.
The money to repay the loan would come from revenues created by taxes on the Macksburg Wind Park.
The projects include the Madison County Courthouse, the congregate meal site, the conservation learning center, and a new ambulance garage.
• Spending on the courthouse would approach $3.3 million. The county is receiving a $330,000 grant from the Jeffris foundation. A $660,000 local match is needed.
• The county has earmarked nearly $1 million for a new congregate meal site.
• The conservation board would get $1.3 million to help pay for the new conservation learning center.
• About $3 million is planned to be spent on a new ambulance garage.
The three supervisors are at odds over where to construct a joint ambulance garage/meal site or to build in separate locations.
Officials say they only hope they’ll need a little over $6 million.
