Automatic federal budget cuts are stalling at least one project that’s being partially funded by federal dollars. It was announced earlier this month that Wellman would receive a $500,000 Community Development Block Grant to update a portion of their wastewater system. Wellman City Administrator Nick Pacha attended a meeting in Ames last week, where he learned that dispersal of the CDBG’s are being stalled by the sequester. Pacha says he’ll be notified once the funds are available.
