The Truman City Council held a brief meeting on Monday to discuss the community building project. During the meeting, Deputy Clerk Carol Becker reported that the city has received a total of $45,700 in funding for the project, including a $40,000 grant and about $5,700 in donations. Becker stated that $27,200 of the grant has already been spent on roof and floor work, leaving $18,800 remaining. Additionally, approximately $5,200 of the donated money has been used for stainless steel backsplash, with almost $1,800 left over.
Becker also shared that the city received a request for funds from the card club to paint the fireplace room in the community building. However, the card club decided to use their own funds for the project, which was approved by the council.
