The fate of $275,000 worth of economic development loans will be decided at tonight’s Albert Lea City Council meeting.

Two companies are asking the city to provide the financial assistance. Vasco, Inc is asking for $125,000 and Kleentec is requesting $150,000. The loans, if approved, would still need to pass a final review by the city before being issued.
