Bellville Economic Development Corporation
On May 2, 1998 the voters of Bellville elected to adopt an additional sales tax under Section 4B of the Development Corporation Act of 1979. Section 4B provides cities with specified options for use of the tax revenue. As required by State law, the City created the BEDC and appointed a board of directors to review, evaluate, and present qualified projects to the Bellville City Council for final approval. The City began collecting the additional tax on October 1, 1998 and has since awarded several grants for various projects. Grant applications may be obtained at the City Hall, the Bellville Public Library, or in the Search Documents section of our home page. Please look under BEDC “Grant Application Package”.
The BEDC meets the 1st Thursday of each month at 5:00 pm in the Bellville City Hall. For additional information, please call 865-3136.
