With Clif Allen of Moore engineering in attendance, the Swanville City Council decided Tuesday, to move forward in the process of building a new water tower for the city of Swanville.

    Allen said that since the state was able to pass a bonding bill that Swanville’s project would be put into the Rural Development for funding.

    “If they are referring you to RD, that is a strong indicator that Swanville will be getting a grant,” Allen said.

    Allen said that he estimates that a grant would likely be a 55/45 grant, being 55% as a grant and 45% as a loan.

    He said that the first step is filling out the grant application, although that comes with a cost of $6,500, and getting the grant is not a done deal.
