OWLS HEAD — Rebuilding the town tennis courts, extending broadband service in the community, and new floats at the municipal landing are the three projects that Owls Head will submit to Knox County for possible funding.

The Owls Head Selectboard met Aug. 16 and one agenda item was to discuss possible projects.

Knox County sent letters to each of the 18 municipalities in the county with a grant application form. The municipalities have until Aug. 31 to submit their applications to the county.

Once the applications are in, the county administration will review and present them to the Knox County Commissioners to determine whether they are eligible for funding and how much will be distributed.

Knox County received half of its $7.7 million American Recovery Plan grant and commissioners are trying to determine how to use the money. The commissioners already allotted $431,000 for extra pay for law enforcement and jail officers and plan next month to offer the same extra pay to dispatchers.

The county is also mulling whether there are county projects that should be done, such as the heating, ventilation and air conditioning replacement at the jail.

Outside organizations such as the Midcoast Internet Coalition and the Knox County Homeless Coalition also asked for county funding.

At the Owls Head meeting, selectboard members were in agreement on the rebuilding for the tennis courts, which is estimated to cost $50,000. The board also said some money could be used for the town’s share of planning for broadband expansion. The floats at the town landing are the ones used at the former pier, leased by the town.

Former Selectboard member Richard Carver suggested seeking money to replace the floats.
