RESOLUTION #3-2022

RESOLUTION OF THE LAPEL TOWN COUNCIL ELECTING STANDARD ALLOWANCE FOR THE EXPENDITURE OF AMERICAN RESCUE PLAN FUNDS

WHEREAS, owing to the negative financial effect on local governments caused by the COVID-19 pandemic (the "Pandemic"), the United States Department of the Treasury provided many local governments with Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (the "ARP Funds") to support those governments responses and recovery from the Pandemic; and,
