Four Towns Get Grants To Help Roads, Sewers, Senior Centers

Four North Idaho cities will split $1.5 million in state grants to pave dusty roads, fix leaking sewers and boost feeble water pressure. Spirit Lake, Dover, Athol and Post Falls have been awarded so-called community development block grants to fix problems they otherwise couldn't afford to. Roughly $7.5 million in block grants, funded by the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development, was approved for 26 cities by Gov. Phil Batt last week. Spirit Lake was the only community in the state to get two grants: $500,000 for street work and $139,085 for construction of a senior citizen center.
