MILLVILLE — The mayor and City Council sat down with engineer Zan Murray to discuss future grants and projects to better the city Thursday.

“Knowing that we’ve got a great relationship with Millville and we’ve had success with grants in the past, I felt it would be very appropriate to start looking at this process,” said Murray regarding grant applications.

What kind of projects would a grant cover or help out with?

“We would look at your capitol improvement projects that you want to do, whether it be a water project, a road project, a parks project, and anything unique like that,” said Murray.

“You may want to consider looking at a couple grants to start getting ready. Depending on what comes out of that strategic funding plan, it may be, that we find out there’s a year worth of preparation before we start applying for grants,” said Murray.

There has also been a little confusion about the city’s water rights that was brought up to the council by Murray. The council plans on putting together documention to clear up any confusion regarding the matter.

The city will continue with the same maintenance crew that took care of North Park last year. It is $120 a week and includes weekly mowing, edging, trimming, and keeping the sidewalks clean and clear.

The city also plans on improving the website which will include city maps.

Storm water costs are going to be down in cost this year because the prior year “we went through the whole permit development process and it was expensive to generate those documents,” said Murray.

There is also a plan to improve the intersection at 3200 South and Highway 165 in Nibley. Mayor Michael Johnson met with Nibley city and said, “It was their number one concern.”
