City officials offer public hearing on grants

(Continued)

MOORE —

Another resident asked if money could be made available to help homes reconstruct that would be self sustaining in the event of another disaster.

“This really helps city staff on how to use those funds,” Ward 2 Council member Mark Hamm said.

A large portion of the crowd was at the meeting to voice opinions about offering a storm shelter fund available to Moore residents. However, according to Jared Jakubowski, special projects coordinator, the Red Cross has stepped in and offered a program for $3.75 million to start a storm shelter program in Moore. The program, which will be announced shortly, would free up funds from the grants to offer other needs.
