In 2021 the Police Department submitted a successful grant, receiving $200-thousand to use toward the purchase of equipment.

Nussbaum also reported the City is making progress on the abatement of nuisance properties. Recently a houses at 807 East 12th and 1704 Morton have been torn down.

While the City was not successful in obtaining a DTR grant to help with the costs of electrical upgrades, Nussbaum said the City will continue to seek funds through the CDBG program to help pay for the improvements.

In addition, it was noted the Falls City Chamber / Main Street organization has received notice they will receive a $10 thousand planning grant to help with their efforts to establish a Creative District. The planning grant will aid in the full application for the Creative District Grant of up to $250 thousand.
