SALT LAKE CITY, UT – November 9, 2010 – (RealEstateRama) — The Utah Permanent Community Impact Board (CIB) approved a $275,000 grant to Wellington City during a board meeting held in Moab, Utah on November 4.
The funding is supplemental to the $325,000 grant the city received in 2006 for the construction of a small debris basin for flood control and a pipeline that would carry the controlled flow safely past homes and streets.
“Wellington City has been diligently working on this project for many years,” said CIB board member and Carbon County Commissioner Michael Milovich. “This additional funding will ensure the city completes the construction of the pipeline.”
The Community Impact Board awards grants and low-interest loans to cities, towns and counties impacted by mining and the extraction of oil and gas on federal land. Projects funded by the CIB benefit rural Utah by creating safer, more livable communities. The program is managed by the Division of Housing and Community Development under the Utah Department of Community and Culture.
