A couple of state bigwigs will be in Ottawa Wednesday to officially give the city a $2 million grant to buy and demolish the old Central School.

David Vaught, the Acting Director of the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity will be in town at one Wednesday at an area overlooking the old school that was damaged during a flood.

The city is getting money from the Ike Property Buyout Program. Money will also go towards buying and knocking homes near the Fox River Park.
