mayorGlasgow Mayor Rhonda Trautman says it’s the largest grant the City of Glasgow has received in her 14 years of working for the city, and that the quality of life will be better thanks to the program.  Last night, a large crowd gathered in city hall for the announcement of a grant that would total nearly $1 Million to build what city officials are calling “The South Fork Path”.  The path will connect Highways 90 and 63 and many other neighborhoods surrounding.  The path will be used for walkers, runners, and bicyclists, and will bring about new sidewalks and guttering to the city.

This grant was sponsored by Councilman Wendell Honeycutt who was happy and amazed that the entire project, and not just a portion of it ,will be funded by the grant.
