HENRY COUNTY - April 19, 2017 – Commissioners approved two amendments to the 2016 Annual Action Plan for the Community Development Block Grant. The action came during a public hearing at the April 18 Commission meeting.

The city of Stockbridge utilized CDBG funds to acquire and install playground equipment in Memorial and Clark Park. The project is partially finished and in order to continue the completion of both parks, an additional $37,500 is needed.

The second amendment regarding funding allows a total of $100,000 be allotted to low-to-moderate income homeowners to assist with the repair or replacement of broken septic systems. Those eligible homeowners would go through an application process with the Henry County Community Development Department to apply for funds. Community Development will work in cooperation with the Health Department, Henry County Code Enforcement and Stormwater in determining need.

Community Development Director Shannan Sagnot made the presentation to the Board after the required public notification and 30-day public comment period.
