The City Council is expected to vote tonight in its regularly scheduled business meeting to pump more than $2.3 million of federal stimulus money into depressed neighborhoods.
Beverly Johnson, administrator for the city’s Department of Neighborhood Services and Community Development, said the city brought in about $2.9 million in federal stimulus money. A second round of spending using the leftover $600,000 will be brought up in a matter of weeks, she said.
The money is being used to fund a variety of projects including revitalization of properties in the Bushtown and Orchard Knob neighborhoods, she said.
