The City of Superior is considering what to do with some remaining federal funds that it needs to spend by the end of 2024 or risk losing, here are some ideas the Mayor and City Council are considering.

Where is The Money Coming From?

The money is coming from The Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds and the American Rescue Plan Act, there are several restrictions on how and when the funds can be spent, so Superior is figuring out their plan of action to make the most of these available funds.

Superior Mayor Jim Paine said in a press release, "I met with most councilors to determine your requests for one-time expenditures. I found that many of your goals overlapped with mine and with each other."

The second is a new proposal with some stuff added in, alongside some projects already underway. Finally, version three is all about where there'll be leftover cash and what to do with it, and that is what the Mayor and Council are trying to figure out.
