Western Week begins June 22
MABANK–Public Management Inc. Vice President Ken Coignet spoke to the Mabank City Council June 4 regarding submission of an application for a TxCDBG (Community Development Block Grant) Fast Fund Grant.
The match amount is 5,000 and the grant maximum amount is $500,000.
If awarded, the money has to be spent by the end of the year and will be used to purchase two new trucks and three pieces of equipment.
Applications are due next week and are statewide, which does not guarantee the grant will be awarded to the city.
