Officials from the city of Gibraltar found out in late September that they were awarded a $2 million grant by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality for maintenance of and improvements to the city’s storm water and sewer management system.
The city had to promise $350,000 in match funds in order to receive the grant. The grant process was competitive, with a total of 673 applications received and $541 million in application amounts total.
