The city of San Marcos is seeking public comments on the proposal to add a COVID-19 testing program through the federal Community Development Block Grant for coronavirus response.
The proposed program would use $105,530 of the $425,261 CDBG-CV funds to create more "immediate" coronavirus testing in the community, said Melissa Derrick, San Marcos City Council member, in a June 16 meeting.
Public comments will be accepted during a virtual public hearing at a San Marcos City Council meeting at 6 p.m. July 7. Residents who wish to speak during the public hearing must email [email protected] before noon July 7, according to a press release from the city.
The drafted CDBG Action Plan for 2019-20 will be available for public comment on the city’s website from July 12-17. Comments for the action plan must be made in writing and include the sender’s full name and physical address.
Residents can send comments electronically to [email protected] or by mail at 630 E. Hopkins St., San Marcos.
