The city of Atchison got $250,000 worth of good news from the capitol last week. It was awarded a $250,000 Community Development Block Grant to replace all east-west sidewalks in a central Atchison neighborhood.
Notification of the award came by mail on Jan. 13 in the form of a letter signed by Gov. Sam Brownback, who wrote, “Congratulations on developing a fine project that will help your community prosper!”
The project includes a “comprehensive repair or replacement” of all east-west sidewalks in a centrally located, residential part of Atchison bounded irregularly from Sixth to 12th streets between Santa Fe and Laramie streets.
