Liberty accepts grant funds

LIBERTY - The City Council accepted two grants Tuesday night pertaining to the Dunnville sewer line and tourism center projects, according to Sharleen Rodgers, city clerk.

The council gave second reading and final approval to an ordinance relating to budget amendments to include a $500,000 Community Development Block Grant that will help finance a sewer line to Tarter Gate Co. in Dunnville, and a $9,011 area development fund grant for a proposed tourism center at the old roadside park property on the north end of town.

In other business, the council named Councilmen Larry Bowmer and Brad Vaughn to study commercial garbage rates because the transfer station fees are increasing. They will report back later with their findings.


Mayor Steve Sweeney told the council that Gate Way Park has asked the city to help with finances, but the council decided to look at the park budget before any action.

After a 20-minute executive session to discuss personnel and pending litigation, the council took no action.
