Money Available For Environmental Projects

Those who want to beautify their neighborhoods now have more incentive to do so.

On Thursday, Lexington Mayor Jim Newberry unveiled a new program that will support citizen's environmental projects.

Through a new grant, the city will match in money, materials or labor to help make neighborhoods more green.

The city wants more people to do things like planting rain gardens or cleaning up stream banks.

You can apply for the new grants through the Department of Environmental Policy. The applications are also available on the city's website.

    Another waste of taxpayer monies! Will these politicians ever ask..Is this necessary? Will the people ever elect someone who will ask those type questions? Of course not..too many folks are looking for their stimulus checks and all they can get without putting out too much effort.

    I don't think the environment is on people's mind at the moment what smart people we have in the government we have more to worry about than a shrub.
