Federal stimulus grants go to three Wisconsin library projects
Much of the cost of the proposed new public library in the Village of Webster in Burnett County will be covered by federal stimulus funding, according to a news release from the Office of Governor Jim Doyle. Along with the $360,000 grant to Webster, 15 other community projects will share $7,045,000 in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). The City of Necedah in Juneau County will receive $610,000 for a $1.3 million project that will include a library. The Village of Turtle Lake, Barron County, will receive $610,000 for a $1.3 million project that includes a library and a storm shelter.
