Canton Council Creates Fund for Rescue Plan Monies


CANTON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – Taking the first steps in preparing to spend a lot of federal money.

Canton City Council has passed an ordinance, creating a fund for receipt of over $63 million in American Rescue Plan monies.

That’s the $1.9 trillion act passed in March.

Mayor Tom Bernabei says there are a lot of requirements for how the money is to be spent.

So, council will eventually be approving different programs funded by portions of that fund.
