Granville Sherman from North Delta Planning and Development gave an update on grants which are open at this time and the deadlines.

The Small Municipalities Grant is due July 15. Sherman said the grant’s priorities are industrial, downtown businesses like tourism and general projects like public buildings renovations.

The limit is $150,000 with a required 10 percent match.

The JAG grants opened and are due July 8. This is a 75 percent with a 25 percent match. Sherman needed a resolution to apply for the grants on behalf of the town.

City Clerk Tiara King asked the board what she should do with people who are requesting and setting up storage buildings in the city. Some people do not have permits she said.

She was told by board attorney Tommy Shuler those buildings cannot be set up in front of the house. Those areas are zoned residential and not commercial so people cannot be selling items from them without special exceptions.

The police have been told to write citations.
