The Angola Village Board of Trustees held a public hearing on Oct. 21, to provide residents with the opportunity to offer ideas and insight into community development and housing projects for potential funding by the Federal Community Development Grant programs. These funds are intended to benefit low and moderate-income residents in the village.
The board then approved a proposal to apply for CDBG funds. The requested funds will be utilized for the following projects, in the order listed: Grove Street waterline replacement project from Washington to Prospect streets; South Creek/John K. Thompson pool ADA improvement project and Rural/Transit van service.
In other board news:
