Sterling Council Warns Citizens to be on the Lookout for Buckling Pavement

The Sterling City Council met via zoom conferencing Monday night for the first July meeting.  During the meeting, City Manager Scott Schumard said drivers need to be on the lookout for buckling roads.

This is when during extreme heat pressure builds under the road and causes it to burst.  Schumard said if you come across a buckled road call the city immediately.

In other business, Schumard spoke of the city and the Small Business Stabilization Grants they applied for to the state.

These grants are designed to help small businesses with expenses while they were closed during the pandemic.  The State stated the grants with $25 million in the program, but, to date has only awarded around $2 million.

Schumard said they have heard nothing in regards to any Sterling business getting a grant and now they have learned that the state has suspended the program.
