Council moves ahead with library grant, hockey lease agreements

Cloquet City Councilors got mixed news about money Tuesday night - and in some cases the bad news came on the flip side of the coin.

Take the Cloquet Public Library, for example, and the happy news that it was offered a $784,000 library expansion grant from State of Minnesota, not quite the $1 million the city asked for. On the flip side is the fact that the grant is a matching one, so the city or some other agency must fund the other part of the estimated $2 million project. The previous council had already agreed to bond for $1 million, provided the library got a $1 million grant.
