Watch this space for information as it becomes available regarding the EDA (Economic Development Administration) flood recovery grant. The grant is shared among the villages of La Farge, Ontario, Viola and Readstown.  La Farge’s main concern is planning for the relocation of the electrical substation and the possibility of additional facilities/homes. The process is just beginning with a contract signed with Vierbicher as the consultant on June 22, 2020. The Mississippi River Regional Planning Commission will be assisting the villages in the process.
