ALBERT LEA, MN — Last week, we told you about an incentive Albert Lea created to bring a new veterans clinic to town and that the county joined the campaign.
Tuesday, county commissioners approved a 50,000 dollar business subsidy to bring in an outpatient clinic.
This, along with Albert Lea’s 50,000 dollars, brings a total of 100,000 dollars in incentives to the fight for the clinic.
“You’re going to have people coming here, they are going to bring their families and maybe while they are at the clinic, people will go shopping there and spending money,” Freeborn County Commissioner Mike Lee said. “And it will be good for the businesses and be good for restaurants. They’d be coming here to eat. It would be great for everybody.”
Leaders should know around the end of the month whether or not their incentives paid off when the decision should be made on who gets the clinic.
