GREENVILLE — The Greenville Downtown Development Authority is one step closure to receiving facade grant funding for the downtown district.
Authority members met Tuesday to discuss the hiring of a certified grant administrator, a necessary step to receive in excess of $1.2 million in grant funding through the Michigan Economic Development Corp.
That figure would be split between six downtown building owners to receive upgrades to each building’s facade, pending grant approval, with each paying a matching fee in the process.
Greenville City Manager George Bosanic presented Authority members with an option from Hager Consulting of Fremont to be hired as the grant administrator; however, a consensus was reached among the board to wait until next week in order to receive up-to-date information regarding the grant process.
The special meeting will take place at 7:30 a.m. on May 17 at Greenville City Hall.
