LUPR seeking grant funding help from City of Latrobe
By Chris Ulicne
Bulletin Staff Writer

Latrobe-Unity Parks and Recreation (LUPR) Executive Director Jeanne Ashley on Thursday reported that LUPR is still hoping to secure a $112,000 grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR), adding that former Latrobe City Manager Alex Graziani had informally agreed to commit $10,000 in city funds to help cover the match for the grant before he resigned earlier this year.

But Latrobe Mayor Rosie Wolford, who represents the city on the commission, said that Latrobe City Council only recently became aware of Graziani’s offer and intends to review the matter and vote on whether or not to approve the $10,000 contribution.
