Feds Fund Ossian Downtown

Ossian has secured a half million dollar Community Focus grant from OCRA (Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs). Thus will people all over the United States of America be paying for downtown Ossian's sidewalks, streetlights and drains. The $500,000 comes from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The money is generally made available to slum areas.

Who knows, if the area folks keep dragging their feet on repairing Norwell, perhaps the Feds will step in and pay for that as well... or close it down.
