Money Graphic

Officials of Myers Township this morning submitted a request to borrow money from Grundy County.

Commissioners reported Myers township is asking for a twenty-six thousand dollar loan, at zero percent interest, to allow for the purchase of a used road grader. The current Myers township road grader was described as costing more to repair than its worth.

The proposal to borrow county funds also includes Myers township covering the down payment on a road grader. Commissioners have taken the request under advisement. But upon questioning by KTTN, the commissioners stated Grundy County funds have been loaned to townships in the past with each paying it back over a period of time.

The county commission made an appointment to the Grundy county senior citizens’ tax board. An attorney at Trenton, Jeffrey Bloom was appointed to a four-year term. He replaces Luke Scott, another attorney, whose term on the senior board expired.
