Yes, no and maybe. One grant application was approved, another denied and plans to apply for one next year were discussed at Thursday's county board meeting.


Award letters for two Park Legacy grant applications applied for in 2012 were received on Wednesday. Park Superintendent Al Lieffort said the county was awarded a grant for acquisition of land at Kensington Runestone Park. The grant for $337,000 will pay for the purchase of 84-acres of land on the south end of Eng Lake.
