STOREFRONT ASSIST: Churubusco grants help restore facades

Each year Churubusco’s Main Street Association requests $25,000 from the town to assist the facade grant program and enhance downtown Churubusco.

The facade grant program for 2017 had its first introduction of the year to the Churubusco town council Wednesday evening.

Each year Churubusco’s Main Street Association makes a request for $25,000 to assist with their program to maintain downtown’s exterior features.

Each year the money has been appropriated to them and approved by the council.

Town council members asked that a representative from the association speak to them about what projects and work they will be doing throughout the year before formally approving their requests.

Complete details and photos on this program are in Friday's edition of your Post & Mail, now available at newsstands and websites throughout Whitley County.
