Hutsonville applying for wastewater help
Daily News

Hutsonville Village Board Wednesday night voted to pursue a community block grant available through the Crawford County Revolving Loan Fund to pay for wastewater-system improvements.

During a special meeting, the board met to discuss applying for part or all of a $1.6 million grant available through the fund, which is administered by the board and Crawford County Development Association.

Mayor Tina Callaway reported she had been in contact with the CCDA and county board members about the parameters for the grant. After reviewing them, Callaway learned that municipal projects like Hutsonville's waste water treatment plant would qualify. She called the special meeting to get the board's approval to purse two grant proposals. One would include money to replace the aging lift station on South Pleasant. The other would be for repair or refurbishment of the existing wastewater plant. Totals for both or either grant range from $375,000 to $1.5 million.

The board also approved having Connor and Connor Engineering to represent the village as it presents the grants to the county board during its next meeting.

It is also believed Connor and Connor will also represent the Village of Oblong on a proposal for its sewer lagoon project.

The board also approved $500 toward the demolition of a house on South High.

The board will meet again in regular session Tuesday, Feb. 11.
