Following the announcement of nearly $6 million in grant funding being directed to the 105th House District, State Rep. Triston Cole, R-Mancelona, issued the following statement:
“On behalf of the 105th House District, I would like to thank the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund board for awarding nearly 6 million dollars for environmentally strategic land acquisitions and development projects.
“The grant writers deserve credit for writing approachable grants and the gas and oil companies deserve a big kudos for investing resources wisely continuing production in a responsible fashion. These projects will boost tourism, expanding public land access for recreational use by all. What a great way for the MNRTF to close out its 40th year anniversary!”
