We'd Like Your Input!

The City has received about $5.6 million in federal economic relief funding through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) of 2021.  The federal government gave us these dollars to:
 
·       Fight the pandemic and support families and business struggling with the impacts
·       Maintain public services
·       Build a strong, resilient, and equitable recovery
 
To date, the City has allocated about $2.6 million of these funds for capital needs in public safety, improving cyber security, investing in affordable housing development, and returning the City’s workforce. With a deadline to allocate the remaining $3 million by the end of 2024 and spend by 2026, the City is seeking your input on how best to use these dollars.
