Carnegie Building Gets Approved

Manhattan Carnegie Library Building will get $90,000 from the Heritage Trust Fund.

Fourteen properties were recommended to receive Heritage Trust Fund Grants for 2002 totaling $955,957.

The project includes stone masonry testing. Column bases and trim will be cleaned and repaired. Hand raking of deteriorated joints and repointing with mortar to match existing joints will be completed.

The Carnegie Building is used by the Riley County Attorney and Community Corrections.

The County Commission approved $42,505.00 matching funds. That is more money than the Commission has spent on Roads and Bridges in the past two years.
