City of Monmouth Receives Grant Funds for West Harlem Project

The City of Monmouth has received word they have been awarded a $500,000 CDGB grant for the West Harlem Avenue project, reports Communications Director Ken Helms:

“We had already had another half a million in a STAG grant award that came from Senator Durbin’s office to help fund that project. We are just waiting on instructions and procedures on how to access that funding so we can get started on that project.”

Over $1 million has been secured for the $1.3 million water main portion of the project. Reconstruction of the water main and roadway for West Harlem Avenue is expected to begin this fall, following the closure of the Pattee Pool for this summer season.
