Subject: Grant Awards

Thought I would let you all know that the city was successful in obtaining a CDBG (Community Development Block Grant) in the amount of $64,260. These funds will be used to help with drainage and street improvements in the post office vicinity.

I received word today that we were also successful in our efforts for a $20,000 grant from the State Health Dept for healthy communities. The funds will be used for further improvements to the park such as some additional lighting and
tennis courts' improvements.

Make it a great day!
