Board Members
The Industrial Development Authority is made up of five members.

Duties
The Mt. Lebanon Industrial Development Authority (IDA) was created on April 10, 2006. Resolution R-9-06 named the initial five authority members and established Articles of Incorporation.

The IDA is a special purpose authority created by Mt. Lebanon to enhance and promote development, redevelopment and economic activities and fund a wide variety of projects including housing, commercial and industrial development, to create public infrastructure and mass transit systems, or to fund education and health care facilities.

The IDA is a conduit issuer, which enables private borrowers to receive the benefit of tax-exempt financing.

Fee Income
In addition, initial and annual fees on these borrowings create a revenue stream for the issuing authority which can reinvest the income in other economic development projects, or use it as a local match for state, and federal funds.

Other Costs
Out of pocket costs of the borrower as well as expenses and/or fees for the Authority solicitor are not deducted from the authority's fees, but paid directly by the borrower / applicant.

Market Area
The IDA may compete for business with any other authority established for the same purpose and is not limited to financing only those projects located in Mt. Lebanon.
