Carey Village Council approved a resolution to apply for a nearly $2 million grant to help pay for a new substation for an expanding company. The Courier reports the $1.9 million U.S. Economic Development Administration Public Works Assistance Grant will go toward contruction of $2.6 to $2.9 million substation across from Continental Structural Plastics on County Highway 96 on the western edge of Carey.

The factory addition, construction of a new school on the south side and a new industrial park under development on the village’s east side will increase the need for electric service.
