Council to review Dye Building loan request

Downtown traffic and parking workshop scheduled on Tuesday

By Melanie Yingst -

TROY — Troy City Council will review a loan assignment request for the downtown Dye Building during its regular meeting at 7 p.m. Monday at City Hall.

The finance committee recommended to transfer the 2007 CDBG loan to Medallion Investments, LLC to Steve Smith and Melanie Elsass-Smith. The 2007 loan was for the purchase and renovation of the Dye Building. The outstanding principal balance is $296,096.32. The Smiths would assume the loan with some modification of the conditions to lengthen the repayment terms. At the time of the closing the City would be paid all late penalties due, and no City funds would be lost with the assignment of the loan. As part of the agreement, a new renovation phase of two years for a third story occupancy has been requested. Another amendment of the loan agreement requests a monthly interest-only payments during the two years of renovation. The 30-year loan repayment plus interest would resume following the two year renovation phase.

According to the finance committee report, Medallion Investments defaulted on the loan in June 2016. The Smiths are in the process of purchasing the building. They are the owners of The Caroline restaurant. Emergency legislation is being requested for the Smiths to close on the loan next month.
