Hardin County is sending four projects to the state for consideration for Community Development Block Grants, according to Regional Planning Director Mark Doll.
Alger was approved locally for $20,500 for phase one of its attempt to install water meters in the village. The funding would cover the cost of 70 meters with the village providing the installation costs. Doll said the process will take two to three years of CDBG funding to cover the entire village.
Alger has not been required to install the meters, said Doll, but in order for the village to apply for future projects, CDBG and other funding agencies would require metered service.
Kenton would be awarded at total of $79,200 to repave portions of Smith Avenue and E. Carrol Street. The CDBG portion of the funding will pay for $37,000 of the costs, while another $37,000 will come from the Program Income revolving loan fund, said Doll. The city will pay $5,200 of the costs.
Another project will bring $20,500 to Ada for replacement and repair of 24 catch basins, said Doll. The village will provide the labor and the cost to install.
The sidewalk project in Ridgeway will continue with $18,000 expected to be approved this year for the project. The grant will include labor costs, said Doll.
