Council Approves Grant Application

At the Valdese Town Council Meeting, Parks and Recreation Director Doug Knight presented details on the DEQ Water Resources grant the town could apply for to construct a greenway along Lake Rhodhiss and McGalliard Creek.

Friends of the Valdese Rec has been fundraising for park amenities and has money available to use for the match needed for the grant. The Council voted unanimously in favor of the town applying for the grant. Councilwoman Hildebran applauded FVR on their continued efforts to raise money for the project after the problems with the fire department building halted any possible tax increase or other funding from the town for the project.
