CADIZ – Harrison County is providing loans to municipalities and government entities that could pose a win-win for both sides.

Recently, interim county Treasurer Vicki Sefsick recently told commissioners that she and Auditor Patrick Moore were working on a plan to offer loans to villages and municipalities at a lower interest rate. Those entities would then repay the county and help bolster its coffers.

Moore said loans have been given in the past but the lower interest rate would be a major advantage for county villages, townships and government entities in need of cash for a project. He added that the interest rate was lower than bank fees and the loan is classified as an investment in the community. More information on the available loans can be found in the Business section of this weeks print edition of the Harrison News-Herald.
