Public Hearing Notice

The City of Bunker will hold a public hearing on March 21, 2017, 5:30 p.m. at City Hall to discuss the city's submission of an application for the fiscal year 2017 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. The city is interested in obtaining all citizens' input on community development needs within the city. As part of the hearing process citizens will be asked to verbally assist in the completion of a Needs Assessment document. The document will detail what the residents feel are the strengths and weaknesses of the community. The city needs as much local participation as possible in order to reflect the true desires of the community as a whole, as well as the comments relating to the proposed project application. The State has established a maximum application request for each funding category. Activities that are eligible for funding include the improvement of public works, public facilities, housing rehabilitation, and others allowed by law. At least 51% of the funds must be used to benefit low-and-moderate income persons. No displacement of persons will be proposed.


The city is proposing to make paving and safety improvements to deteriorated city streets including Lincoln Avenue, Tom’s Creek Road, and Wilkins Avenue.  All city residents will benefit from the project, which is estimated to cost approximately $247,000. The City has secured $25,000 in cash match and the city proposes to apply for grant funds of approximately $222,000 needed to make up the balance. The project, if funded, will benefit 57% low/moderate income persons. All citizens are encouraged to attend in order to comment on the proposed activities.


For more information on the proposed project, contact Mayor Gary Conway Jr. at 573-689-2444
