CDBG funds for Senior Citizen Centers – The first of two public hearings was held at the City Council meeting regarding how $22,924 from the Wayne County Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) will be used in 2018. The second hearing will be Jan. 16 at the next City Council meeting. CDBG funds are intended for the operation of Senior Citizen Centers for programs to keep seniors active and involved in their community. Housing director Tracey Emmanuel proposed that funds be used to replace malfunctioning PTAC units (individual packaged terminal air conditioners). The balance will be used for general program administration.
