Red Willow County commissioners, at their weekly meeting Monday morning, unanimously approved a $70,000 county loan to the walk-in medical clinic under construction on North Highway 83 in McCook.
The loan to High Plains Urgent Care P.C., from the county's revolving use loan program, will be repaid at 4 percent interest, over five years, with monthly payments of $1,289.16.
The loan requires the creation of two full-time positions.
Rex Nelson, director of the McCook Economic Development Corp., which oversees the county's loan program, said the EDC board is comfortable with the loan request, that the clinic has also been approved for bank financing.
The county's $70,000 will be used to purchase equipment, Nelson said.
County Attorney Paul Wood is to review documentation, which the commissioners' motion authorized Commission Chairman Earl McNutt to sign.
