Grundy County Board members last week heard an update about the distribution of American Rescue Plan funds.

Finance Director Matt Melvin outlined how much money has been allocated so far and what projects are now off the list.

Board Chairman Chris Balkema said the county plans to use around $4.15 million on the health department building, $1.05 million on new HVAC systems for the Grundy County Administration Building and Courthouse, $650,000 for parking lots improvements at the Administration Building, $333,000 for the Grundy County ETSB, and $250,000 scheduled for electronic document storage and shredding project.

Balkema said those projects will be discussed more at future meetings. Meanwhile, Melvin said Grundy County received around $10 million in American Rescue Plan funds and the money has to be spent by 2026.
