The Mayor of Johnstown, Vernon Jackson, and Fulton County Supervisor, William Waldron, joined Ronald Peters, President and CEO of Fulton County Center for Regional Growth, on August 4, 2017, for the presentation of $25,000 in grant funding to Cover the Distance, LLC d/b/a Fox Run Golf Course.
Richard and Marlana Scott were very excited that their application was accepted by New York State. They used the funds to purchase a new greens mower. “This is the first piece of new equipment that the golf course has purchased. The other equipment is all second hand,” said Mr. Scott, as he showed attendees various features of the mower. “This purchase was made possible because of these grant funds.”
Ronald Peters said that he has enjoyed the opportunity to fund small businesses through this program. “This program has proven to be a great fit for Fulton County,” Mr. Peters said. “It has given small businesses like Fox Run the edge they need to succeed.”
Microenterprise Grant funds are designated for businesses with 5 employees or less. Job creation is an important aspect of the grant process. Fox Run has created 2 jobs already this summer as part of their grant obligation.
