Executive Director of Kankakee-Iroquois Regional Planning Commission Edwin Buswell provided Medaryville Town Council members with a recommendation when they met last Wednesday.
According to Clerk-Treasurer Judy Harwood, Buswell recommended hiring Lindi Conover-Thompson to do a full-service income survey for the town. Officials will soon be seeking financial assistance for the proposed water tower project. In order to receive any kind of grant funding, they will need to provide necessary data that this type of survey will gather.
Members voted unanimously to approve the recommendation, permitting Conover-Thompson to conduct the income survey at a cost of $4,000.
In addition, members also set a date for the public hearing that must be held over the grant process. Clerk-Treasurer Harwood stated that it will take place during the regularly scheduled town council meeting on May 16th.
