The Village of Bethalto is looking to continue improving property within the village through the use of federal funds. This week board members unanimously approved two resolutions that will allow Mayor Steve Bryant to apply for grants from the Madison County Park Commission Fund and the Madison County Community Development Grant Fund.

Bryant says that the grant from the Park Commission fund would cover about 94% of the project at the Bethalto Sports Complex.

Bryant also said that he is submitting a request for the maximum grant that the Community Development Fund will award. If awarded, the 100-thousand dollars would cover the cost of the next phase of the Shellview/Sheridan Storm Water project, which will replace the storm drains along those streets.
