Possible Grant Could Help Pay for Trash Boat

MOBILE, Ala. (WPMI) City leaders have approved a request to apply for a grant to help pay for a boat dedicated for picking up trash in Three Mile Creek.

The $50,000 grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation requires a city match.

Councilman John Williams says this boat would be in addition to a trash boat the city agreed to purchase in its consent decree with the Alabama Department of Environmental Management in 2014 for pollution violations.
