Land bank continues mow, maintenance program


The Calhoun County Land Bank Authority is taking applications for its Neighborhood Mow and Maintenance Program this year.

The program, which began last year, offers $3,000 seasonal stipends to participating organizations that mow and maintain 20 vacant properties from April to October. The funding has been used to help pay for neighborhood projects, youth group activities and nonprofit events, according to a news release.

Groups are required to provide their own equipment, fuel and supplies.
