Local News in Brief : Block Grant Budget Approved

February 05, 1989

The Lawndale City Council voted 3 to 1 last week to approve a budget for the city's 1989-90 Community Development Block Grant funds. The budget includes $45,731 for public service projects, $377,107 for a residential property rehabilitation program, and $64,716 for improvements such as curbing and underground utilities at the city's senior housing project, to be built at 153rd Street and Condon Avenue.

Acting Mayor Harold E. Hofmann opposed the city taking responsibility for the improvements at the senior project, but after some discussion he voted with Councilmen Larry Rudolph and Dan McKenzie to approve the budget. Councilwoman Carol Norman voted against the allocations, urging that some funds be set aside for a truancy program.

Following the recommendation of a Citizens Advisory Committee, the council approved funds for graffiti removal, a senior nutrition program, the Center for Independent Living, South Bay Free Clinic, a center for the homeless called House of Yahweh and the South Bay Youth Service Center.
