Sewer bids higher than expected
Placeholder Image
The bids stink for a sewer rehab project in the city of McMinnville. Officials must contribute an additional $44,495 to receive a $500,000 grant.The city applied for a Community Development Block Grant totaling $500,000 back in 2010. Word recently came that the grant had been awarded with a match requirement from the city of $80,000, bringing the total to $580,000.While the city was expecting to chip in $80,000, it turns out that’s not going to be enough.
