HANNIBAL, Mo. — The Hannibal City Council has taken two more steps toward applying for an emergency Community Block Grant.
During Tuesday night's meeting at Hannibal City Hall, council members approved a resolution authorizing the mayor to take the actions that are necessary to help secure the grant funding. That action followed a public hearing regarding the emergency grant that took place prior to the council meeting.
The city is seeking the grant in order to help pay for a storm sewer collapse along Union Street in February of this year.
City Manager Lisa Peck said the cost of the repair is estimated at $832,979. The city is proposing to contribute a combination of cash and in-kind labor in the amount of $81,500 ($80,500 in-kind and $1,000 cash). The amount of the grant being sought is $752,479.
