DuBois City Council Chooses Solicitor, Funds Downtown DuBois Inc.

SHARE NOW

DUBOIS – The City of DuBois has a new solicitor. Thomas Breth, who has been serving as Interim City Solicitor for several months, was voted in unanimously at Monday’s City Council meeting.

In other action, council unanimously rejected the DuBois Public Library’s request for $49,000 to match a grant which would be used to repair air conditioning units. City Manager Shawn Arbaugh recommended that council reject the funding since the library claimed they already had the necessary funds when application was made for the grant.

Council awarded $20,000 to Downtown DuBois Inc for its operating costs this year. The city will also provide $10,000 toward a matching grant program in 2025 if the Downtown DuBois Inc group meets the matching requirements.
