Business Incentives

The City of Fertile EDA is offering incentives to businesses and industries that wish to locate in the Industrial Park. Lots can be purchased with a low down payment of only $2,500 and a generous two-year payment plan. As part of this payment plan, future payments can be eliminated entirely by meeting certain benchmarks established by the EDA.

Water and sewer hook-up fees are also quite low and can also be paid for over time. In addition, City of Fertile water and sewer rates are also quite low in comparison to surrounding communities.

Finally, the City of Fertile EDA offers low interest loans to assist with a portion of start-up costs. This loan can also quite often be included with owner's funds to meet down payment loan requirements from private lenders.
