The grant provides a total of $1,013,662 for construction and inspection services to be matched with $204,553 in county funds.
It is a state-funded grant using funds from the Small County Outreach Program (SCOP) and Small County Road Assistance Program (SCRAP).
The grant agreement will be considered for approval at the July 14 Sumter County Commissioners’ regular meeting. Upon approval of the grant, the bidding process will occur with a planned start date of construction in October and completion in December.
