Economic Development

Washburn's Industrial Park is an area developed in the Marshall County area of our village, with lots available for businesses seeking a great location.  The lots are 1 - 2 acres and sell for the appraised value, and have been made ready to build upon. County Line Tools and Grebner's Machine have already located there and construction has begun on another.  
TIF zones provide opportunities to redevelop areas in ways which can lead to increased property values, increased tax revenue, improved village infrastructure, increased housing supply, new jobs and an overall improvement in quality of life for the inhabitants of the town.
