A resolution authorizing a $500,000 loan from Genoa Bank for additional costs incurred during the construction of a new township administration building has been approved by the Lake Township trustees.
Under the agreement, the 15-year loan will have a 4 percent interest rate but the township will have the option of refinancing at seven years.
