Dowagiac City Council Monday night extended its $24,700 agreement with economic development consultant Cynthia LaGrow of Coloma through March 2014.

The amount of the base contract remains the same, plus it contains incentives for successful grant writing ($150), tax abatement processing for new equipment ($25), brownfield plan approvals ($50) and filing environmental review materials ($100).

The contract focused on industrial development also retains a provision to reimburse up to $300 of costs to attain or renew professional licenses and certifications.

“The price for the contract remains the same,” City Manager Kevin Anderson said. “Cindy has been with us a number of years and has done a real good job of helping us attract businesses and has proven a good resource for grant writing.”
