City receives $275,000 grant

coloradocityclipartColorado City Mayor Jim Baum got the call last week; a call bringing good news to city officials deep in the middle of making significant infrastructure expansions. The City of Colorado City is the recipient of another grant from the Texas Department of Agriculture in the amount of $275,000, according to Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples.
The city’s Director of Operations Michelle Guelker said the grant money will help fund water well projects that are already in the works.
The city has drilled two wells on property deemed the Mitchell Lease, located about three miles southeast of town off of County Road 412. Another has also been drilled on the Wallace Lease, located about 1 ½ miles south of Loraine.
The drilling of all three wells has been completed and pumps have been installed, but there is no electrical service as of yet. Guelker said city officials are waiting on Sharyland Utilities to run electricity to the pumps.
As soon as electricity is supplied, the pumps can be turned on and testing for the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality can begin.
The latest grant money brings the total to $1.485 million received by the city in the last couple of years.
The first TDA grant, in the amount of $750,000, was issued to help pay for the extension of sewer and water lines east to the site of the planned Stripes Travel Center. Engineers are seeking bids to begin the project which will bore under I-20
Another $460,000 was granted to the city to extend lines west under I-20 to provide for the construction of the Studio 6 and Super 8 motels. While the city still does not have cash in hand, official notifications has been made and city officials have signed agreements stipulating the receipt of the grants.
