The Clarke County Development Corp. grant committee was asked to grant the City of Osceola $500 for the sign to go up at Lauren’s Bark Park. The grant passed.
As the CCDC works toward gaining funding and further information regarding a training center to be built at the E. Eddy Saylor Industrial Park the board discussed the opportunity of using grant funds to have enough money to move forward with the building plans. The board will continue to seek donations from CCDC members, federal and state grants and other sources. The grant committee voted to fund the difference of what was needed, after all other grant sources were exhausted, up to $480,000.
