Vidalia and Toombs County Apply for Grants
Wednesday, 27 March 2013

March 28--  In a called meeting, the Toombs County Commission approved the submittal of an application of a Community Development Block Grant for $500,000 to be used on a facility for the Mercy Clinic.  The approval was delayed from the last regular meeting in order to make necessary changes to the wording prior to approval and the application deadline of April 1st.  A decision on whether or not they will receive the grant should come from the Department of Community Affairs sometime this summer.  This is the same type grant that was used to fund the new Boys and Girls Club in Vidalia.

 

In conjunction, the Vidalia City Council approved in a called meeting the waiving of the water and sewer tap fees and building permit fees for the Mercy Clinic facility, pending approval of the grant.  In addition, the City of Vidalia also approved Sara Davis of Associates in Local Government of Alma, Georgia as the administrator of their own Community Development Block Grant application.  The city’s grant is also for $500,000 and will be used for water, sewer, and drainage issues within the city.  Hofstadter and Associates of Macon, Georgia was approved as the engineer for the project.  The city previously approved an additional $386,000 to go with the $500,000 grant for a project total of $886,000.
