GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) - Grand Island’s Citizens Review Committee has unanimously voted to recommend a forgivable loan of more than $200,000 to help a shipping and freight company add new jobs in the city’s downtown area.

The Grand Island Independent (http://bit.ly/1JvCT7n ) reports the committee voted Thursday in favor of a loan to help GIX Logistics add 26 new jobs.
