Commissioners Plan for $19.3 Million in Federal Money
The funds are from the American Rescue Plan
Vanderburgh County Commissioners have earmarked more than $19 million in American Rescue Plan money. WNIN’s John Gibson reports:
Commissioner Ben Shoulders told Tuesday’s meeting that a number of projects have already been completed in Vanderburgh County, thanks to the federal funds:
Commissioners say the remaining $19.3 million should go to projects including a $6 million upgrade of the Evansville Coliseum, $3 million in improvements to the Coroner’s Office, $1.2 million for cameras at the county jail, $1 million for a mental health wing at the jail, and $1 million for more road paving.
The Vanderburgh County Council still has to sign off on the funding plans.
Commissioners hope to give final approval to the plans at their next meeting June 28th.
