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
Make it a great day!
