SEMCOG's Transportation Improvement Plan has awarded the council $163,633 to "replace two diesel utility vehicles with newer, less polluting vehicles" said a letter from SEMCOG's Policy Analyst Stephen Brudzinski.
Brudzinski's letter also explained the city would need to "match 20 percent of total project costs from non-federal funds" to replace their old dump trucks.
The council intends to weigh their options and make a decision during their special meeting on Thursday, which is open to the public. The City must reply to SEMCOG by September 7.
