The Spring Hope Board of Commissioners has called a special meeting for 7 p.m. Monday.

SPRING HOPE — Town commissioners have called a special meeting for Monday to consider a request for federal funds as part of a possible larger project to fix infrastructure problems including the town’s aging water system.

Spring Hope is set to receive $380,000, which would be separated into two installments, said Town Manager Jae Kim.

The town Board of Commissioners first discussed the possibility of funding under the American Rescue Plan Act during its April meeting. The money is a portion of the more than $1.3 billion that North Carolina municipalities will be allotted as part of the federal coronavirus relief and omnibus spending package.

The town is also in the middle of a state Department of Environmental Quality asset and inventory assessment grant project.

“Results and recommendations from this program with the assistance of the town’s engineer could then map out a plan on how to tackle some of the infrastructure needs for the community,” Kim said.

In order to receive the American Rescue Plan funds, a resolution is required by the N.C. Pandemic Recovery Office, which is part of State Budget and Management.

The special meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday in the Spring Hope Municipal Building.
