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.
