The July 25 meeting of the Mound City Council started out with a presentation from Centerpoint Energy’s Roger Schmitz who was there to present a Community Partnership Grant to the city.
“The community grant partnership program offers a way for Centerpoint to partner with the cities we serve,” Schmitz said. “Through the program, we’re able to help cities purchase necessary safety equipment and safety projects that are important to your community.”
Schmitz added that since the project started in 2003, Centerpoint has donated $1.5 million to the communities they serve and have funded 775 projects with that money.
“I’m pleased to present the City of Mound with a community partnership grant of $2,500 that will be used to purchase an automated external defibrillator, or AED, and traffic control equipment,” Schmitz said.
The council thanks Schmitz and Centerpoint for the donation.
