Columbia, Adair scheduled to get $75,000 in PRIDE grants

New trash cans for Columbia, clean-up on Mt. Tussel and Joe Conover Roads provided for in allocations
Adair County is expected to receive a PRIDE grant of $50,000 and Columbia one for $25,000 at the PRIDE board meeting at the Center for Rural Development in Somerset tomorrow, starting at 10:00 a.m., Eastern, Wednesday, July 13, 2005.

Adair Countan Arvist Sinclair, Columbia, is a member of the board of directors of PRIDE, and will be present for the meeting.

In all, PRIDE is expected to make grants totalling $2,050,312.97 in the 41-county area it serves.

The Adair County grant of $50,000 matches the county's application. Columbia had asked for $50,000, but will receive $25,000.

The Adair County funds are for cleanups on Mt. Tussell Road and Joe Conover Road, the Fall 2005 and Spring 2006 tipping fees. The county's money comes with a recommendation that a metal recycler be available in 2006.

The City of Columbia will receive $25,000, of which $20,000 is for tipping fees. Safety supplies used in clean-up have a $750 allocation, and the balance of the grant, approximately $3,000, is designated for new trash cans.

The PRIDE organization was co-founded in 1997 by Congresssman Hal Rodgers and General James Bickford.
