The City of Centralia has passed a resolution in support of the state granting Biocenosis Solutions, Incorporated a $125,000 grant to help them purchase a building at 310 South Chestnut for their operations.
City Manager Lowell Crow says as part of the proposal, Biocenosis will contribute $125,000 of its own capital for additional equipment.
“They are going to generate 5 new jobs as part of updating their facility.”
Councilman David Sauer voiced his support.
“It’s federal money benefiting a local business. You simply have to support it,” said Sauer.
The council was unanimous in doing so.
There was no public comment at a public hearing prior to last night’s council meeting on the grant proposal.
