Sac City Awarded Derelict Building Program Grant

Sac City is one of six rural Iowa communities to be awarded a grant from the DNR Derelict Building Grant Program.

Sac City is receiving over 80-thousand dollars to abate asbestos and deconstruct an old commercial building. The city plans to develop the area into a trail head and green space for farmers markets.

The DNR Derelict Building Grant Program was instituted to help rural communities with populations of five-thousand or less remove environmental hazards, improve community appearance, and minimize costs by recycling and reusing building materials through deconstruction or renovation of abandoned, derelict buildings.
