NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - The City of Natchez is applying for state funding to repair the city-owned Angelety House.

The Natchez Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/2aBhIJ4) the Natchez Board of Aldermen approved Community Development Director James Johnston’s request to submit an application for grant funding to the Mississippi Department of Archives and History to repair the property.

Johnston told the board Tuesday the house is in “extreme danger” of falling, with the most urgent need being the roof.

Mayor Darryl Grennell says a blue tarp covered a section of the roof that’s leaking.

Grennell said the roof is approximately 30 years old and has exceeded its life expectancy.



The project cost is approximately $215,000.

The city would be required to contribute a 25-percent cost match for the grant.
