PROJECT IN THE AMOUNT OF $25,000.
RESOLVED, that the city of Duluth does hereby authorize acceptance of a
grant from the Minnesota historical society in the amount of $25,000 for
the Lincoln Park bandstand project, said funds to be deposited into Fund
262, Agency 622, Object 6212.
OF PURPOSE: The purpose of this resolution is to
authorize acceptance of a grant from the Minnesota historical society through
its state capital projects grants-in-aid program in the amount of $25,000.
The grant will be used to assist in the restoration of the Lincoln Park
bandstand. The city previously awarded community development block
grant (CDBG) funds as the match for the project. The total project
budget is $145,800. The Lincoln Park Neighborhood Coalition identified
this project as the top priority in their strategic plan in 1998.
Construction work on the project will commence this summer and will be
completed before the end of the year.
