Community Development Block Grant

Community Development block grant is expected to help beautify a small town in rural, southwest Coffee County.

Kinston Mayor William Mullins learned that his hometown is in line for just under 100-thousand dollars.

The fund will be earmarked toward the removal of old, dilapidated buildings considered eyesores.

City officials say such structures are blight upon the town.

Under the grant, the government pays 90-percent of the removal expense.

The property owner is responsible for ten-percent.

The cities of Geneva and New Brockton have also been awarded block grant dollars to demolish old, abandoned structures in those Wiregrass cities.
