JAMESTOWN – Leaders in Jamestown are slated to move forward with rolling out new programs to help further economic development in the community.
The City’s Council is scheduled to vote on several resolutions that would authorize the first round of assistance from American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Funding.
Specifically, the Mayors office, through the Department of Development, are looking to launch programs to help the manufacturing, restaurant and professional service industries recover.
Officials have held several round table discussions over the past several months in an effort to identify areas of need. If the council okays the request, nearly $4 million dollars in funding is slated to be available in the form of grants.
In total, the city received $28 million dollars from Washington, D.C. with $10 million proposed to help with economic development.
The council is scheduled to meet at 7:30 p.m. in the City Council Chambers on the second floor of City Hall.
