CANNELTON – Surveys went out to Cannelton residents Wednesday, Mayor Mary Snyder said. She urged all city residents to complete and return them.

No one in Cannelton will see completed surveys, she said. Results will help the city obtain grant funding.

Snyder said during a Dec. 9 meeting she and others had discussed a recent grant denial and how applications for such funding are scored. A current income survey can bolster such application.

“The current documentation they’re using is about 10 years old,” Snyder explained, adding the Indiana 15 Regional Planning Commission was to get addresses from the city’s utilities office and send out the surveys.

“We’ll have to buy the envelopes and stamps, and they’ll take care of all the mailings,” she added. “The city will not see any of it.”

The council voted at the Dec. 9 meeting to approve paying the planning commission $1,200 to administer the survey and a $250 certification fee.
