According to Gawronski’s presentation, the six-month period of every fiscal year is always January until June, so the numbers should be even better for the second half of the fiscal year.
Market on Main Project Director Heather Ware was also in attendance for the meeting in order to give a report and hold a public hearing on the Market on Main project.
A presentation to City Council and public hearing was required because Community Development Block Grant that was awarded in 2010 for the assistance of funding for the project, which totals approximately $1.6 million.
Ware presented the goals and scope of the project to councilmembers, and also mentioned that the project should hopefully be 100 percent completed in April of this year. As of right now, Market on Main is approximately 75 percent finished, so there is still work to be done but the project is taking form.
