The City of Belmond has applied for two more state grants to help fund the Colts Corner Daycare project.

   City Manager Darrel Steven Carlyle told the city council Feb. 15 he has applied for a storm water/drainage grant plus a new daycare grant announced just last month by the governor. The two grants total $175,000. Carlyle said he hopes to hear a decision from the state very soon.     

   It was announced Feb. 16 that the Barkema Trust has pledged $25,000 per year to the daycare project for four years.
