La Salle receiving state money for pool improvements

Posted by wlpo on October 23, 2013

Your town never really receives a state grant until the check arrives.  La Salle recently received a portion of a Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity Grant.  The payment was a pleasant surprise for Public Works Superintendent Sam McNeily.  He says they were approved for the grant a while ago but then never heard any more about it until recently.

The grant is for $115,000.  With it the city will replace a water heater, pool heater and windows at the swimming pool and the light’s at the 9th Street Park baseball diamond.

McNeilly says whatever the grant doesn’t cover the city will pay for.  The grant doesn’t require a match.
