Governor Tom Vilsack will be in eastern Iowa today to announce Clinton is getting a “Vision Iowa” grant for the city’s “Things To Do With A River View” project. Clinton Area Chamber of Commerce executive Dennis Lauver says the city asked for a 12-point-one million state grant, but expects to get less than that.The Vision Iowa board often requires matching dollars from all local governments, as well as some private-sector fundraising. The total project highlighting Clinton’s Mississippi River view is estimated to cost 27-million. However, Vilsack invited Mason City leaders to Des Moines for an announcement yesterday, as Mason City’s getting a 675-thousand dollar state grant for the “Music Man Square” project. Vilsack’s announcement in Clinton is scheduled for 2:30 p.m.
