Chiefland moves forward with grants

-A A +A
By Mark Scohier, Staff writer

City commissioners are looking to take advantage of money that could improve Chiefland, voting unanimously in favor of several opportunities in the form of grants at Monday night's meeting.

The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity has decided that Chiefland should get up to $25,000 to help pay for economic planning and development work done by David H. Melvin, a company that would review the city's Comprehensive and Vision plans.

Part of the work will also involve helping set up a Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) for Chiefland. Commissioners voted to accept the grant, applied for earlier in the year, and agreed to meet with staff later next month on the pros and cons of setting up a CRA.

A CRA, in short, would allow the city to keep more of the tax money it collects each year, as long as the money is dedicated to redevelopment in the city.

Commissioners also voted in favor of accepting a grant, worth up to $14,000, from the Florida Division of Historical Resources to help market the city's historic train depot.
