Great News from Community Development
This past week I met with the Orange County Director for Community Development, Richard Mayfield, who provided tremendous news for our Village. We were approved for the Hazard Mitigation Grant funding that we applied for three years ago! This grant will fully fund, with $500,000, a Lakelands culvert project, which will remove the ponding and major flooding in that area. The grant also includes fully funding an $80,000 generator project for the Village’s designated storm shelter – the Elks.
