Sidewalks in Farmer City will soon be very much improved thanks to the community being awarded over $100-thousand from the State of Illinois as a part of the Safe Routes to School grant.
Administrator in Farmer City, Sue McLaughlin tells Regional Radio News says it will bring their sidewalks to Schneider School up to ADA compliance and provide sidewalks in places where there are none.
This project will follow a renovation that is to take place in front of the high school. McLaughlin explains the project in front of the high school will create a revamped circle drive and provide better flow on school days.
McLaughlin credits their partnership with the school district to get this grant to Farmer City and benefit the kids of their community.
McLaughlin says the school project will get going this June and the Safe Routes to School project is likely to get going next spring or summer as the City has to put plans together to submit to the State.
