JENNINGS, La. (AP) — The City Council will seek up to $600,000 in Community Development Block Grant money from the state to pay for a proposed street overlay project.

City Clerk Barbara Lantz says Jennings is eligible to receive up to $600,000 for the project.

Any grant money awarded to the city would help with maintenance and improvement of streets, Mayor Terry Duhon says.

The project calls for the asphalt overlay of East Willis Street, East Spencer Street, Renshaw Street, Mulkern Street and West Plaquemine Street from Louisiana Highway 26 to the west.
