White Bluff officials hope to find out more about why the town was turned down for another sewer system improvement grant and use that information to improve its next application. Projects Coordinator Jeff Martin told the council Tuesday night that the town’s application for a Community Development Block Grant for a second phase of sewer improvements was rejected by the state. The town previously received a $500,000 grant to make improvements with infiltration and inflow problems. Martin said the town hoped to get another grant to help replace pump stations at Taylor Town Road and Park Street. The state was expected to release its application scoring criteria this week and Martin said he hopes the town can use that information to tweak its next application before the February deadline. “We’re just going to keep going with our project,” Martin said. Grant applications are scored on a points system and Martin said work on treatment plants usually scores higher than repairs to leaking collection lines.
