Trenton Mayor Alex Case announces today the receipt of a $128,440 grant from the Appalachian Regional Commission to the City Of Trenton. The funds will be applied toward the cost of paving Vanguard Drive."This is something we've worked toward and we are pleased to have been awarded this very important grant," said Ted Rumley, Dade County Commissioner.When the road is paved next year it will provide a much-needed route for vehicles in the Trenton-Dade Industrial Park to get past any standing trains. "These funds fulfill an important purpose, and are very much appreciated," said Mayor Case, who worked closely with Commissioner Rumley and Peter Cervelli in obtaining the grant. The project was also supported by Senator Jeff Mullis, president of the Northwest Georgia Joint Development Authority."A paved Vanguard Drive will help increase the marketability of properties we have for sale to industry," commented William Back, head of Dade County's Industrial Development Authority.Patrick Vickers of the Georgia Department of Community Affairs hand-delivered the check to Trenton.
