Augusta to Apply for Sidewalk Grant

Posted: Updated:

The sidewalk next to Stuarts Draft High School is done and now Augusta County supervisors are looking into expanding it.

Supervisor David Karaffa argues the Stuarts Draft community wants sidewalks on Ox Road, but his motion received no support.

After hearing from the board, Karaffa made a second motion to continue sidewalks on Round Hill Drive. The board unanimously agreed to apply for a grant to fund 80 percent of the project with federal money, leaving the county to pay a little more than $44,000.
