Village of Climax Gets Road Funds
State Rep. Matt Hall (R-Emmett Twp.) applauded the Michigan Department of Transportation for awarding the Village of Climax a Transportation Economic Development Fund (TEDF) Category B grant for year 2020. The grant totals $50,637.50.
“I commend the Village of Climax for the hard work they put into earning this grant.” Hall said. “Category B grants go a long way to help local communities repair their crumbling roads. I will continue to support policies that invest in our local villages and small cities.”
The grant money will help fund the full reconstruction of North Church Street from Cherry Street to the dead end of North Church, Sheldon Street from the guardrail to Maple Street, and Ebinger Street from Maple Street to the dead end of Ebinger.
The Category B program was created by 2018 P.A. 473, which was signed by Governor Snyder on December 26, 2018 and effective on March 29, 2019. The purpose of the program is to provide additional road funding for cities and villages with populations of 10,000 or less.
