|The Calhoun Commission is reviewing current and future grants for the county.|
The commission is continuing to check on the current status of the county's $5.2 million waterline extension project, which is scheduled to be put out for bids.
The entire 21-mile project, stretching from Russett to Millstone and south on Rt. 16 to Chloe, has been fully funded for some time.
The commission reviewed the status of current grants for courthouse repairs and a grant due March 3rd related to courthouse security.
The current security grant calls for improved lighting around the courthouse.
The commission approved the pass-through for grants obtained by former Del. Bill Stemple, including $15,000 for the Calhoun Historical Society, $2,250 each for the Grantsville and Arnoldsburg volunteer fire departments and a $10,000 grant for improvements in the county clerk's office.
Stemple obtained the grants from the governor's contingency funds.
