Schuyler City Council approved a motion this week that allows a local committee to apply for a grant to add a climbing wall at the swimming pool.
According to project coordinator Fran Sobota, the exact dollar amount for the grant is unknown at this time. The application for the Peter Kiewit Foundation grant will include expenses for the climbing wall, with a percentage of that amount considered for grant funding.
The swimming pool committee is also collecting donations to cover a portion of the cost.
The grant application is due Oct. 15 and the committee hopes to have the climbing wall installed by next summer if funding is available.
