CLEARFIELD -- The city is looking at how to spend its federal dollars to help low- to moderate-income families, but this year it has about $25,000 less to work with than last year.
The city held a public hearing during the recent regular city council meeting, and is now in a community comment period through April 21.
The plan will be presented in final form to the city council for approval May 10.
The city expects to receive an estimated $225,737 in Community Development Block Grant funds for July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2012.
This is $25,082 less than what the city received in the last funding cycle.
Plans for the funds include using $13,000 for the Clearfield Youth Resource Center; $9,860 for the crisis/respite nursery for children ages 0 to 11 at the Family Connection Center; $11,000 for the Davis Community Housing Authority for emergency home repairs; $45,000 for administrative costs of the CDBG program; and $146,877 for infrastructure projects.
The plan is to do a project on 100 North between North Main and 300 East Street.
This includes updating about 1,500 linear feet of existing 6-inch sewer pipe with a new 8-inch line as well upgrading the 4-inch water line to 8 inches.
