After several tries, Deshler Council has found a buyer for the former Morrow property. Jeff and Lori Vance purchased the home and parcel at the minimum bid of $200. They are required to have the building brought down within in the next two years.
Deshler Council approved a couple of grant applications during their meeting Monday night. $500,000 is being sought through the community development block grant program, to help fund the lagoon project. A grant was also approved in an application for funds in the ‘nature-works’ program, which would help purchase new dugouts for Memorial Field.
Council approved a resolution to hire Jones and Henry for consulting work on the Keyser Street storm sewer project, at a cost of $50,000. A grant will pay for half of that total.
And Deshler Council hired Brian Robinson as a full-time police officer in the village, to begin duties immediately.
