MONTGOMERY - Gov. Kay Ivey has awarded $18.7 million in Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) for improvements in 58 Alabama communities.
From these grant funds, the Town of Hackleburg will receive $85,000 for street improvement projects, including widening and paving or sealing, and the Marion County Public Water Authority will receive $350,000 to provide public water service to the Bexar Church area.
Hackleburg Mayor Darryl Colburn says his office has been working on securing the CDBG grant monies for a year to fund the repaving and repair of Union Hill Cemetery Road.
“We are extremely thankful for this grant,” Colburn said, noting that the money will be matched with $72,000 from the Town of Hackleburg.
