WOODSFIELD - The Washington Township/village of Graysville area was selected Monday by the Monroe County commissioners as the proposed investment area for the 2013 Neighborhool Development Program.
Two public meetings have been scheduled for April 27 and May 4 with dinner at 5 p.m. and the meeting at 6.
Mary Jo Westfall, Extension Office associate, who works on grants for the county, emphasized the importance of attendance at these meetings, because citizen participation is considered to be important when the successful grant applicant is chosen.
Several proposed projects already have been selected, and these will be discussed and considered at the public meetings. Final decisions on the projects to be submitted will be made at the May 4 session.
The entities and the proposed projects are:
Village of Graysville:
Graysville and Community Volunteer Fire Department:
If this section of Monroe County is chosen on the state level as an investment area, $300,000 will be available for projects.
After selecting the investment area, commissioners adjourned the meeting to attend a County Commissioners Association meeting at Undo's near St. Clairsville.
When they returned to Monroe County at 3 p.m., commissioners went into executive session with Mike Seyer of Clemans, Nelson and Associates and Andrea Smith, the new administrator at the Monroe County Care Center, in regard to personnel and contract negotiations. No action was taken after that session.
