City Council to prioritize stimulus projects
The Janesville City Council meets Monday evening to prioritize projects utilizing federal stimulus dollars.
City Manager Eric Levitt says city staff have identified more than $50 million in potential project needs. He says the council needs to first learn what programs are available through the stimulus program and the city staff's approach to apply for the funds. Funding is not in one allocation, as previously expected, but categorized in specific programs in federal agencies. The council will also discuss the Federal 2010 Appropriations Bill and its possibilities for funding.
The meeting starts at 5pm in City Council Chambers. It will be televised on JATV.
