Title
Qualified Target Industry (QTI) Resolution - BioMonde (B)

This item seeks City Commission approval for an amended QTI Resolution previously approved by the City Commission to adjust timing associated with prospective job creation for the location within Gainesville of BioMonde.

Explanation
BioMonde, a larval therapy company providing debridement treatments to the US wound care market was approved by the City Commission for local QTI participation in January, 2014 for the establishment of a business unit within the City of Gainesville that would create 18 manufacturing, sales and marketing and administration jobs.
