The key aim of local government is to provide a distinct organized system where councils can exercise their responsibilities and power to work together for order, efficiency, growth, and good governance of their relevant counties. According to Fred Glynn paying heed to the needs of the local communities, the official belonging to the Hamilton County recently announced a stabilization fund for small businesses that have been established in the region. This was done in order to help small local businesses that were forced to close during the COVID-19 pandemic. Glynn himself is also a part of the Hamilton County Council.
Hamilton County is a county that comes under the US state of Indiana. It is a part of the Indianapolis-Carmel-Anderson, IN Metropolitan Statistical Area, and its County seat is Noblesville. As per the 2010 census, this county was the home to three of the 20 largest cities and towns of the state, including Noblesville, Fisher, and Carmel. Fred Glynn represents District 1 of the Hamilton County, which includes nearly all of Carmel and the western edge of Fishers. In addition to being part of the Hamilton County Council, he also is active in multiple charitable organizations, which include Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, Prevail of Central Indiana, and Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana. He also is an active member of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church. His empathic nature is often reflected in his philanthropic efforts.
Even the initiatives taken by the Hamilton County Council underline their focus on their efforts to make life better for the less fortunate, and as an elected member of the council, Fred Glynn is among the key brains behind such initiatives. While recently announcing grants up to $10,000 per business for small businesses based on “demonstrated need,” Glynn mentioned that these funds are largely meant to aid the ones who have been hit hard by government-mandated shutdowns. He also spoke about the fact that as the county government is fortunately managed in a fiscally responsible manner, they were able to invest back into the community in times of crisis. The COVID-19 pandemic is among the biggest crisis faced by the world in the recent year, the Hamilton County is no different. The Hamilton County Council additionally underlines that the businesses who are eligible for the Hamilton County Stabilization Fund must:
- Be at a stable standing in regards to the discerning state and local taxes, licenses and code compliance
- Not owned by an out of state corporation, and be absolutely locally owned
- Be in good standing with the Indiana Secretary of State
- Have been developed and started its operations in the Hamilton County for at least the period of the previous six months
Any business that has expanded to a storefront from another business would also be eligible for these funds. Further details about the fund can be found on the County Council website.
