Grant spending

The CDBG-CV funds are to be spent related to COVID-19 and to offer maximum benefit to city residents. The proposal for the funds discussed include us paying to staff CSO, a nonprofit, with a caseworker, picnic tables/hand dryers at a closed pool and iPads for the fire department. We can do better than this with the funds. I think helping the fire department is great, but iPads is certainly unique and hand dryers spread COVID-19. Bloomsburg provided picnic tables downtown for businesses, which was a good idea.
