Sulphur Springs Receives State Grant For New Senior Center

City of Sulphur Springs, Facebook

Emily Glass, former mayor of Sulphur Springs and out commentator on events in the city, discusses the $2.4 million state grant the city recently received to build a new senior-citizens center.

The city already had $1.5 million from a bond issue approved by voters. The grant is from the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs, and will allow the city to build an 11,000 square-foot facility.
