Topsham authority gets down to business|
Darcie Moore Brunswick Times Record (ME) December 29, 2005
TOPSHAM - Topsham's Local Redevelopment Authority on Wednesday directed Town Manager Gary Brown to apply for a grant from the federal government agency it will be working with through the Brunswick Naval Air Station base-closing process.
Board members accepted the proposed budget Brown presented as the basis for the grant application.
The grant will seek funding from the Office of Economic Adjustment. The authority decided to set its 2006 fiscal year to coincide with calendar year (ie. Jan. 1 through Dec. 31) as part of the discussion about the grant. The Office of Economic Adjustment provides grants in 12-month increments, Brown said, and Bryant Monroe, project manager with the agency, requested having Topsham's budget by next week so he can process it simultaneously with that of the Brunswick Local Redevelopment Authority.
While it may seem early to be putting together a budget for the authority, Brown said, the sooner one was formulated, the sooner federal money would be available, thereby sparing the town from having to spend local money.
Though it could be a few months before the Topsham Local Redevelopment Authority sees the money, Brown pointed out that it has been authorized to spend money as of Dec. 1, with those expenses being eligible under the federal grant.
