NORWICH – The City of Norwich Police Department and the Department of Public Works plan to apply for grants that could cut taxes in the future.
During Tuesday night’s meeting of the City of Norwich Finance / Personnel Committee, Assistant Police Chief Dale Smith and City Finance Director William Roberts both informed the committee about grants they were applying for in order to find additional funding for city programs.
In order to minimize the $4.5 million cost for the upcoming Rotating Biological Contactor (RBCs) project at the City Wastewater Treatment Plant, the Department of Public Works is pursuing multiple grants. The RBCs are a critical part of the secondary treatment system. The equipment was damaged from years of use and from additional loads during the 2006 floods.
