DANBURY (Winston-Salem Journal) - A proposed maintenance garage will not be built because state money for the project is no longer available.
Stokes County and the Yadkin Valley Economic Development District Inc. had worked on the project. The garage would have included a transportation office for YVEDDI.
A grant for about $300,000 that was awarded to YVEDDI by the N.C. Department of Transportation in 2003 is no longer available, County Manager Bryan Steen told commissioners during the board’s meeting yesterday.
Steen, who met with DOT and YVEDDI officials in June, also said that DOT officials were stunned to hear that the building project was a joint venture between the county and YVEDDI.
DOT officials told Stokes officials that the grant application asked for money for a project that was only for YVEDDI, he said.
