Missoula County Gets Grant Money for Courthouse
MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — The city of Missoula and Missoula County have won a $679,000 grant to clean up several properties including the county courthouse.
Regional administrator Jim Martin of the Environmental Protection Agency presented the funding Wednesday.
The grant funding includes $279,000 to clean up asbestos, lead paint and other contaminants at the courthouse, which is being renovated to include a new emergency operations center, an expanded sheriff's office and updated courtrooms.
A $400,000 Brownfields Revolving Loan Fund grant will help Missoula remove contaminants and redevelop properties throughout the city.
