A ceremonial big check for $55,000 was presented by Stone Workman, state director of USDA Rural Development to Connie Perry, mayor of Nashville to fund a new parking lot to serve downtown businesses.

Funds will be used to acquire and develop about .25 of an acre of land for a parking lot adjacent to Berrien County offices and retail businesses and shops.

Rural Development's Rural Business Enterprise Grant program provides grants for projects that support businesses or enhance the economy.

The City of Nashville and other organizations are contributing $7,800 towards the project, which is expected to result in saving 10 jobs and creating six new jobs.

Information on rural development programs is available at www.rurdev.usda.gov/ga/.
