of developing a new City Ordinance which would hold business owners accountable for the upkeep of the exterior of their building.  Sundboom expressed his dissatisfaction with some of the City Council Member’s negative reactions.  Borowy agreed.

Discussion was held on how to reach out to business owners and promote the program the City would like to put in to effect.  Wille shared some of the ideas expressed at the meeting to help promote the City’s effort; place information in the “hot sheet”, converse with business owners, have a walking tour of the downtown buildings with a professional that can point out the architecture of the buildings, and provide flyers to realtors and banks to give to potential building buyers. 

Wille also stated the Council considered expanding the Facade Loan Program to include roofing, windows, brick, etc.  He stated that the 0% loan would have to be matched by the property owner.  Wille suggested taking the “cap” off of the loan amount as the improvements to the buildings could be expensive.
