COVID-19 Relief Funds

GARY -  Gary Mayor Jerome Prince may use federal COVID-19 relief money to improve infrastructure in the city.  On Friday Prince said he will form a planning team to potentially use the $83 million relief package funds to improve infrastructure throughout Gary, set up a reserve fund, and to generate new sources of revenue for the City.

Prince said the planning team will develop a comprehensive spending plan to get the most out of the relief funds and will study the legislation to ensure each step is in line with legislators’ intent.
