(Vincennes, IN) -- The Vincennes City Council has approved submission of a grant to possibly bring one-point-three million dollars for needed levee repairs. The money would come from an Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs grant. The City would match the funding with over 136-thousand dollars in EDIT money.
Vincennes Water Utilities general manager Kirk Bouchie says a lot of the funded work will go unseen by the public.
Bouchie also updated another Levee-related project-- a realignment of the intersection and train tracks at Second and Niblack.
The grant submission will be administered by the Southern Indiana Development Commission. Bouchie and S-I-D-C officials are positive about the City's chances to receive the state funding.
