The City of Marion is promptly receiving economic aid through the CARES Act for expenses incurred in response to COVID-19.
City Controller Julie Flores reported there have been two requests submitted to the Indiana Finance Authority thus far, and swiftly fulfilled:
Request #1 — $3,084.20 submitted 7/13/20. Reimbursement received 7/17/20. These were expenses for supplies needed for the COVID-19 health emergency.
Request #2 — $11,165.80 submitted 7/16/20. Reimbursement received 7/27/20. This was for overtime hours substantially dedicated to mitigating or responding to the COVID-19 health emergency.
Flores said she is pleased with the efficiency of the process, noting several contributing factors. “Departments have been very helpful in submitting information for me to process for reimbursement. The application has been straightforward and easy to navigate, and the turnaround has been very timely,” she said.
Flores added that City expenses in response to COVID-19 continue to be incurred, and will continue to be submitted expediently for reimbursement.
