Hearing set on CARES fund for city youth club
VERGENNES — The final hurdle for the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Vergennes in obtaining $9,300 in federal CARES Act funding is a public hearing scheduled for Dec. 28 at Vergennes City Hall and on Zoom.
The funding was awarded to the city youth club to help it handle its extra COVID-related expenses since March 2020.
Technically, however, the Vermont Community Development Program was required to give the funds to the City of Vergennes to be forwarded to the Boys & Girls Club. As part of that process a public hearing is required.
That hearing has been scheduled for noon on Dec. 28 at city hall at 120 Main St., Vergennes. Those interested may also log onto us02web.zoom.us/j/5737235099 to participate and learn more about how the club proposed to use the funds on its grant application and why they are needed.
That link will also be available on the city’s website, vergennes.org.
