Town Board allocates $3 million to four projects

Feb. 20. By Dave Vieser. The Cornelius Town Board approved spending $3 million on four different town projects. The money, from a one-time grant, must be used for capital improvements and equipment.

The funds will be allocated as follows:
—$1.2 million towards improvements at Bailey Road Park, including tennis and pickleball courts.
—$900,000 for resurfacing town maintained roadways.
—$500,000 to replace self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) for the fire department.
—$400,000 towards the replacement of the playground at Legion Park.

Pursuant to the state grant, the funds must be spent by October of 2025.

With $3 million in previously budgeted funds now made available, the commissioners then agreed to apply $1 million towards the Smithville Infrastructure Improvement project. Decisions regarding use of the remaining $2 million will be made at a later date.
