$50,000 Grant Awarded to Grant City for Track Resurfacing Project
The Solid Waste Management District supported the Grant City application to the MO Department of Natural Resources Solid Waste Management Program, Non-Playground Scrap Tire Surface Material Grant. The application was successful and the $50,000 grant was awarded to Grant City earlier this spring. The track project is scheduled to begin this summer and be completed by the fall. The Solid Waste Management Program approved a local grant of $7,826.62 for the project in the FY'14 grant cycle. The track is an important asset for the community, utilized for both school and community activities.

Recycling Planning Process to Begin
Three communities received their Recycling Plan Tool Kit to begin the recycling plan process. This project is funded by a grant from the USDA Department of Agriculture, Rural Utilities Solid Waste Management Program. A region wide survey was conducted this winter; reports were distributed and the development of a recycling plan is the next step for communities taking part in the program. To date the cities of Grant City, Hopkins and Pickering have shown interest in the planning process. There is still time for other communities to come on board, the project ends on September 30, 2014.
