The City of Williamsville will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, August 17th, 2021 at 6:30pm at the City Hall to discuss the city’s submission of an application to the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) COVID-19 (CV) program. The city is interested in obtaining all citizens’ input on community development needs within the city. As part of the hearing process citizens will be asked to verbally assist in the completion of a Needs Assessment document. The document will detail what the residents feel are the strengths and weaknesses of the community. The city needs as much local participation as possible to reflect the true desires of the community as a whole, as well as the comments relating to the proposed project application. The State has established a maximum application request for each funding category. Activities that are eligible for funding include the improvement of public works, public facilities, housing rehabilitation, and others allowed by law. At least 51% of the funds must be used to benefit low-to-moderate income persons. No displacement of citizens will be proposed.
The City is proposing facility renovations including but not limited to roof repairs, plumbing repairs and new flooring to be made to the Wayne County Nutrition Center. The total project cost is estimated at $150,000. The project, if funded, will benefit 66.67% low-moderate income persons. All citizens, including those in the targeted area, are encouraged to attend in order to comment on the proposed activities.
For more information on the proposed project, please contact Mayor Sandy Joy at 573-998-2449. If you require special accommodations (including virtual participation or LEP assistance) at the hearing, please contact City Clerk, Lynn Schultz at 573-998-2449. The meeting will be held at an accessible location and the city will make every effort possible to provide reasonable accommodations.
