Grant Applications Approved for Road Work, Forestry Management Plan

Grant applications for resurfacing part of JFK Boulevard and creating a forest management plan were approved Sept. 10 by the Township Council.

The JFK application, submitted to the state Department of Transportation, would be used for resurfacing JFK from Webster to Renfro roads.

The second grant application is for the state’s 2013 Green Communities program. The money would be used to offset the cost of a forestry consultant to help develop the township’s Community Forestry Management Plan.

The township would provide a 33.3 percent patch of the $3,000 grant through in-kind services, if grant rules allow, according to a memo about the application from Carl Hauck of the township’s engineering department.

Hauck said the plan is estimated to cost $4,500. The remainder of the fee would come from the township’s Shade Tree Trust Fund.
