Von Minden Project Gets $75,000 Loan From The Schulenburg EDC

Schulenburg Economic Development Corporation offered a $75,000 loan to Von Minden Partners, the group behind the restoration effort at the historic Von Minden Hotel in downtown Schulenburg.

The EDC board made the decision at a meeting on Jan. 30. Von Minden Partners applied for funding from the EDC last year after purchasing the building from the previous owners, the Pettit family of Schulenburg. The $75,000 was the same amount the EDC loaned to another downtown rehabilitation project last April, Anytime Fitness of Schulenburg, which is owned by Chip Bubela, who was elected last May to the Schulenburg City Council. Last April the EDC also awarded a $25,000 grant to the Anytime Fitness project. The EDC did not award any grant funds to Von Minden Partners.
