La Grande Projects!

This last Tuesday, La Grande City Manager, Robert Strope, presented a list of potential improvement projects being considered by the City Council. The $3M funds for these improvements would come from the federal  American Rescue Plan Act. The list was brainstormed by city departments and included road improvements, utilities extensions for new housing developments, a fire engine, land acquisition for a new police department complex, and a recreation center. Robert gave a brief presentation of each need including pictures of several city streets that need repair. After considering the list, Robert invited the Club to rank-order the items.  Robert displayed what the council had prioritized as a comparison.  Road improvements were high on the list as were additions to utilities for a new housing development.
