The city of Pana is looking to receive federal grant money for infrastructure projects and Pana’s mayor is asking for residents’ help. The grant would total $500,000 , and all residents have to do is take a quick survey.
Pana mayor Don Kroski says the city needs a 75 percent response rate on the survey to qualify for the grant, and they need the public’s help in taking the surveys.
Kroski says once the survey is completed, the data from that survey is good for five years.
Kroski says the city spends in excess of $100,000 per year repairing water leaks. He says if the city got this grant money, it would go towards new water mains and replacing out-of-service fire hydrants.
