NEGAUNEE, Mich. (WLUC) - Negaunee property owners may now benefit from a fire suppression grant.

The grant is part of the Negaunee Downtown Enhancement Project. It allows property owners in Negaunee to save money installing lateral water lines for fire suppression. The grant will allow owners to pay $3,000 over two years compared to $12,000. Negaunee City Manager Nate Heffron said there has already been some interest among property owners.

“We did a little bit of a pre-interview with folks to see who would be interested to see if we even wanted to offer this grant at the time before we improved the downtown enhancement project,” Heffron said. “We had about 20 or so property owners that were interested in having these laterals installed to their properties.”

Heffron said for those interested the deadline to submit applications is June 12.
