|Delegate David Walker announced to Calhoun commissioners yesterday that he is yet to hear from his current "hope list" submitted to the Governor's Community Participation Program.|
The GCPC is a replacement for the old Budget Digest.
Walker did announce the approval of three grants submitted some time ago when Del. Stemple was serving, to the Grantsville and Arnoldsburg Volunteer Fire Departments for $2,250 each.
The Calhoun Clerk's office received a grant for $10,000 for record preservation.
