Here’s what happened at this Orem City Council meeting:
1. Adopt Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Final Statement of Projected Uses of Funds

The Commission presented its recommendations to the City Council in the first of two public hearings on March 28, 2017. Tonight’s public hearing is the final opportunity for public comment on the recommendations before the City Council officially adopts the Final Statement of Projected Uses of Funds for Orem’s 2017-2018 Community Development Block Grant.
