BRAWLEY — The City Council here, sitting as the city Redevelopment Agency, will consider Tuesday providing a $450,000 loan to the company that is building and will operate a beef-processing plant here.
The council meeting is set for 7 p.m. in the council's chambers, 225 A St.
City Manager Jerry Santillan said the loan to Brawley Beef LLC would cover costs associated with the pre-treatment of waste from the plant.
Santillan said city officials and beef plant officials have been discussing the loan and there are agreements on the conditions upon which the city would provide the loan.
He said the money would go toward making sure waste from the plant meets city requirements before it moves into the city's wastewater treatment system.
