Downtown revitalization grant program
Changes have been proposed to the Downtown Revitalization Grant program. In addition, the Shops at Perryville, which was awarded funding during the first round of the grant, has requested a modification to that award.
"The original request was Phase I improvements to install a standing seam metal roof, which was expected to cost approximately $41,000 and the award was for a $10,000 grant," Breder wrote. "The modification request was to change it to a shingle roof with a total project cost of $11,000 and a grant of $10,000."
After review, the grant review committee recommended that the owners be given an extension to do the work, but to still require the standing seam metal roof.
The board of commissioners will need to make a decision on the request.
In other business during the work session:
