MAGNOLIA, Miss. (AP) - Magnolia officials are applying for two grants that could help fund city construction and beautification projects this year.

The Enterprise-Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1wTGAuB ) the town’s board is applying for a Land and Water Conservation grant and a Recreational Trails Program grant.

Earlier in the year, the city extended the walking trail at Reid Memorial Park. It was the first phase of work on the park. Mayor Anthony Witherspoon said the second phase will include lighting, playground equipment and a possible splash pad.

The board said it wants to pursue additional work to the downtown pavilion and add public restrooms.

The mayor said he isn’t sure which grant will pay for which projects, but the board will make those determinations when it hears back from the state agencies.
