The Dawson County Board of Commissioners will hold a special called meeting next week to discuss the Community Development Block Grant that will be used to construct a new senior center in 2019. The county was notified Aug. 24 that they would be receiving the $750,000 grant and the board of commissioners voted Nov. 1 to accept it. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development allocated the funding to Georgia’s Community Development Block Grant program, which is administered by the Georgia Department of Community Affairs. The hearing will be held at 5:30 p.m. Dec. 6, just before the regular meeting at 6 p.m. The hearing will be open to the public and is a forum for officials to discuss the approved activities for the grant, including the plan for how the money will be spent and the amount of money that will benefit low and moderate income persons, according to an ad from the county.
