City Council Meeting

There's been plenty of press about companies laying off local workers, but Tuesday evening, the Eau Claire City Council has taken a step toward helping a firm keep more than 100 jobs, and add a few dozen more.

To do that, they've had to approve their part of a comprehensive package of loans and tax credits.

The City Council approved a measure to give Harmon Solutions Group a $70,000 credit loan for their proposed call center.

The loan includes a contingency that Harmon must create 200 jobs with five years.

Harmon Solutions Group audits and investigates insurance claims.

The Economic Development Director says the next step is for the county board to contribute funds toward the project.
