Glenwood City Council Authorizes Mayor to Seek COVID Relief Funds
At its regular monthly session on August 4 the Glenwood City Council adopted a resolution to authorize Mayor G.M. Joiner to accept funds from the federal Coronavirus Relief Fund. An advance of $10,223 will be made available with the stipulations that all money must be used to mitigate adverse financial difficulties resulting from COVID-19. If the city realizes expenses less than the amount of the advance, that money will have to be returned; however, if the need is greater, the city could receive up to $34,078. Ongoing City of Glenwood projects include: CDBG 2015 — Contact was made with Kayla Johnson at Heart of Georgia Regional Commission, facilitator, and Jerry McMillan, contractor, regarding the installation of fire hydrants in the city.
Generator Grant — FEMA is reviewing a grant application $6,000 for generators for the Glenwood Fire Department. The grant would pay $5,100 leaving the fire department with a commitment of $900.
LMIG Project — The contractor has begun replacing obsolete pipe prior to proceeding with the rest of a paving project on North 7th Street.
