The City of Chelan is giving some more funding assistance to the company it hired to pave the way for the city to get some grants for various infrastructure projects.

At Tuesday's City Council meeting, the council approved 20-thousand dollars to Ardurra, a Spokane-based development company whose Lead Funding Specialist, Annalisa Noble, has been working with the city over the last seven months to research funding opportunities and find grants the city might be eligible for. City Administrator Wade Farris was asked if the city has applied for any grants so far:

Farris says the city has looked at various grants, but decided not to apply for them, either because the grant match was too much, or the work involved would not be worth the grant. The grant season, so to speak, is coming up, though, and Farris explained one grant through the CHIP program that the city found out about a couple of months ago:

Other grant opportunities are with the Transportation Improvement Board for transportation projects, as well as the State Department of Transportation Rural and Tribal Assistance grants for transportation planning, which are due next month.
