County grant writer James Hissong said a $46,300 grant through the MDNR Trust Fund program was confirmed for continued development of the county’s river trail network.
In addition, a $62,500 grant through the agency’s Land and Water Conservation Fund for a playground, dock and accessibility upgrades at Cade Lake County Park and Campground was awarded.
