Posted by wlpo on September 9, 2010

FEMA is coming through with a grant to build a replacement grade school in Ottawa.

The agency is giving the Ottawa Elementary District about $10.5 million to build a school to replace Central School which was damaged during a flood.

The project is estimated to total $23 million.

Vissering Construction of Streator was hired last week for the construction.  There’s still another round of bidding for another phase of the work.

A groundbreaking ceremony is Tuesday at 1pm.
