The city recently found $200,000, but it was not sure where the money came from or how it was to be used. It finally figured out the money was a revolving loan fund for small businesses. Owners say the loan was important in finishing their expansion.
"For little guys like that need help to fix up the outside of the building and make it more appealing for people who want to come in," said owner Nicholas Goodman, "it's a huge deal. And they've been more than happy to help me with the events that we've been doing here and support behind that. So, they've been a big help."
The city says it wants other businesses to know the funds are available for similar renovations.
