Things are happening. The Reinharts and helpers are moving ahead with improvements to the roadside shelter house. Private funds are coming in, which we really appreciate. And the City is contributing $500.00. Still a long way from our goal.
Received notice of funding in the amount of $1,028.60 from the Iowa's Living Roadways grant for landscaping around the ODEBOLT signs.
The TREES PLEASE grant in the amount of $1000.00 is being used for trees along Hwy. 175 through town. Madeline has these trees ordered. Madeline, Kerry & Deb have really been working to keep things moving.
From the April 6, 2009 City Council Meeting Minutes
We received word that we have qualified for a $1000.00 matching grant from MidAmerican's Trees Please Program. We have other applications in the process and are hopeful for landscaping items. As the timing is not ours to choose, things might not happen until the fall of 2009 or even the spring of 2010. We are continuing to push forward.
