Jackson city officials announced today that FEMA has approved additional funding for the new Jackson Community Center.

The project will overall cost $5 million and the City revealed in a press release that the amount of the grant award is now of $3,361,685, instead of the initial $2,400,000.  

Jackson’s Mayor Barbara Lohr said the cost of the Tornado Safe Room portion of the new community center turned out to be higher than anticipated in the original grant application.
