The Knox City Council approved a resolution to apply for a $350,000 grant from the state Office of Community and Rural Affairs for a proposed water project. The city has earmarked a 25 percent match of $87,500 for the project. It could include the replacement of water lines around brown circle on Delamatyr, Fisher and Adam. The other part of the project would extend lines to Mound Street and Myrtle Court. Washington Street and Allen Drive would also be involved. The project may also include an extension of lines from Williams Street to John Street.
The full application will be submitted by May 29. K-IRPC is assisting the City in obtaining the grant by completing all of the necessary paperwork. If the grant is not awarded to the City of Knox, the city will not need to pay that money. The council unanimously agreed to sign the resolution.
