Clawson to receive grant for renovation of town hall

The Utah Permanent Community Impact Board suspended the rules of their regularly scheduled project review meeting held on Aug. 7 to vote on and approve a funding request from the Town of Clawson.

Town leaders requested and received emergency funding in the form of a $200,000 grant to repair structural damage to the town hall building when it became impacted by soil settling of more than three and a half inches.

The funds will be used for a new concrete apron that will be constructed around the building. Mini-piers will be used to re-level the foundation of the building. Funds will also be used for a new drainage system that will move storm runoff away from the building.

"This project is of an emergency nature and will prevent a public safety situation," San Juan County Commissioner Bruce Adams who represents the Southeastern Association of Governments said. "The structural integrity of the building is compromised and the repairs need to be made immediately."

The Community Impact Board awards grants and low-interest loans to cities, towns and counties impacted by mining and the extraction of oil and gas on federal land.

Projects funded by the CIB benefit rural Utah by creating safer, more livable communities.

The program is managed by the Housing and Community Development Division under the Utah Department of Workforce Services.
