The City of Mason will make improvements to the Eckert Community Building with the help of a $25,000 community development grant.

The grant, provided by Mason Utilities and LCRA, will be used to build a handicap restroom facility and a reverse osmosis system that will provide clean and treated water to the facility and the community.

The community grant is one of a number of grants recently awarded through LCRA’s Community Development Partnership Program. The program provides economic development and community assistance grants to cities, counties, volunteer fire departments, regional development councils and other nonprofit organizations in LCRA’s electric and water service areas as part of LCRA’s effort to give back to the communities it serves. The City of Mason is one of LCRA’s 43 wholesale electric customers and a partner in the grant program.

The Mason County Historical Society will make good use of a $5,000 community development grant.

The grant, provided by the City of Mason Utilities and LCRA, will be used to construct a retaining wall for the re-enactor’s camp area, build a rock fence and a blacksmith shop.
