The Kalkaska Village Downtown Development Authority will be applying for grant to help fund the construction of a clock tower and informational kiosk near the site (shown) of the former chamber of commerce building on Cedar Street, adjacent to the Kalkaska County Historical Museum in downtown Kalkaska.

KALKASKA – The Kalkaska Village Downtown Development Authority got the go-ahead to apply for a Rotary Charities Capital Grant at the regular meeting of the Kalkaska Village Council on Monday, Sept. 25.

But the effort to fund the construction of a “clock tower” and informational kiosk near the site of the former chamber of commerce building on Cedar Street, adjacent to the Kalkaska County Historical Museum in downtown Kalkaska, did not receive the council’s full blessing. Two council members – Penny Dupuie and Denise Kelly – voted against the grant application.

Despite the 5-2 vote, Dupuie said she wasn’t necessarily against the project. She added that her “no” vote was because she felt she didn’t have enough time prior to the meeting to review the project.
