Funds to be used for heating and ventilation system

CHICAGO - Governor Rod R. Blagojevich today awarded $350,00 to the City of Granite City for replacement of the heating and ventilation systems for the City Hall building.
“The replacement of the heating and ventilation system will make the Granite City’s City Hall building a place that is safer, more comfortable and more accessible to all of its citizens, “ said Governor Blagojevich.
The Granite City’s City Hall facility is a multi-use facility that houses the city’s judicial court system, municipal court system, services of the City Clerk, the City Treasurer, the Mayor’s office, the Comptroller’s office, and the Safety Department. Grant funds will be used to replace the current heating and ventilation system, which is poor and is disrepair and has caused damage to the ceilings throughout the building.
Approximately fifty employees work at City Hall on a daily basis and approximately four hundred resident of Granite City conduct business with the municipal court system each day. The multi-use facility serves approximately 30.000 residents of Granite City, IL.
“We would like to thank the Governor for awarding these funds to the Granite City, City Hall,” said Representative Thomas Holbrook. “These improvements will make the facility safer and more comfortable to all of the people who work in the building and all of the citizens who benefit from the facilities services.”
