It would be nice to support the existing businesses that wish to expand their business but are not hiring more people. Honestly how can we say "keep working in Defiance like you have for 35 years but we have no money or grants to help with your skyrocketing cost, however, anyone new to the area is welcome to apply for numerous tax incentive and grants available. Also it does not matter if your business is Women owned or minority based, the help is only available to new business to area or job creation based. Even Mr. Mangus recieved low interest loans for the construction of office space he built out north but funds are not available to me to build a new Social Security building. Both of us are landloar4ds we don't or won't own the businesses that occupy the space.

I own the property the Social Security occupies, which they have been renting for the last 35 years. My Father buit it for them. Since the rise in the number of floodings in the area, or the threat of flooding, they are closing the doors on East Second St., owned by local residence. THey will be moving to Stadium Dr. and will rent from the lowest bidders from Colorado, Chicago, or myself. Now what chance do I possibly have of retaining them as a client.

Seriously, this town has it backwards, and they refuse to change. Good Ol Boys Club is alive and well in Defiance, Ohio. I have asked for help from numerous city and county officals for three years with no success. So let it be known , if you have an existing business know you are on your own, if you are from out of town ,come on in and we will give you money along with a warm welcome until you become old exisiting business,.
THank You Guys!
