CDBG grant acquired to rehabilitate Russell street

RUSSELL – The city of Russell was awarded a Community Development Block Grant to rehabilitate West Wichita Avenue between Van Houten and Fossil streets. Ten bonus points were awarded for a Hansen Foundation grant that covered 10 percent of the project cost, helping to make the CDBG application successful.

The Hansen grant will cover the cost of engineering design on the improvements to the main thoroughfare, which receives heavy use by agricultural and oil field trucks.
