Vidalia Seeks Grant for Boys & Girls Club
Thursday, 20 January 2011

January 20--  The Toombs County Boys and Girls Club in Vidalia may get a new home if the Vidalia City Council has its way.

The council voted Thursday to apply for a $500,000 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) to partially finance a new building for the Boys and Girls Club on city property at the intersection of Wynona and Third Streets.  If the project is successful, the building would belong to the city and be leased to the club for a dollar.  Other funds would come from city sales taxes.  

City officials say construction could start at early as next year if the application is approved later this year by the Georgia Department of Community Affairs.

In other action at a called meeting, the council agreed to step up enforcement of dilapidated houses, approved a four-way stop at the corner of Ward and Peachtree, and took no action to grant a zoning variance allowing continuation of a personal care home on Pinecrest Drive.
