Welcome to the Marion Port Authority Site:


The Marion Port Authority was created in 2003 through a joint venture of the City of Marion and the Marion Board of County Commissioners. The mission of the Marion Port Authority is to implement economic development initiatives that will strengthen and diversify the economy of Marion County and Central Ohio.


The Marion Port Authority is a tool to assist the Marion community in fostering economic development. The port authority can work with businesses to provide both private and public financing.


Why the Marion Port Authority? The port authority may be able to help your business save money through its tax-exempt status or ability to work with various State Loan funds.


The Marion Port Authority works closely with Marion CanDo!, the city/county economic development agency and the Marion Regional Planning director.


The Marion Port Authority has a five member Board appointed jointly by the City of Marion and the Marion County Commissioners.


If you are anticipating a building project, renovation project, energy savings project or other business additions, the Marion Port Authority may be able to provide tax savings or loan procurement.
