Some improvement projects are coming to the City of Zanesville.

City Council met Monday evening passing an ordinance that allows the city to apply and administer the Community Development Block Grant, a grant at the federal level that allows communities to use the funds for specific projects within the city.

"And those this year include a bridge replacement on Muskingum Avenue, it also includes a water line replacement on Jewett Drive, and an awning replacement on the Salvation Army Building," said Zanesville Community Development Director Stacy Clapper.

Clapper says the city received 11 applications for various projects from both city departments and non-profit organizations earlier this year.

"Those are tall taken to a Citizens Advisory Committee and that is a representative from each ward that comes and discusses each of those applications, they then set the criteria for them and prioritize, and these are the top three activities that they have chosen," said Clapper.

The city is expected to receive the 152,000 dollar grant by fall. Construction on the projects will begin next spring.

In other council news, in it's second reading, council passed an ordinance allowing the city to advertise for bids to help control the odor problem at the Wastewater Treatment Plant on Moxahala Avenue.
