Mansfield's Safety-Service Director is defending city council's decision last week to reject filing an application for a state grant to conduct a study of the amount of blight.

Lori Cope says the $100,000 dollar grant would require a $116,000 dollar local match to come from Mansfield's Community Development Block Grant fund.

But that allocation is only $110,000, and the city administration and council Republicans prefer to give Richland County Transit a large subsidy, so the match could not be covered.

And, the federal government will triple R-C-T's  local subsidy.

A group of several entities worked since 2011 on preparing the application.

Cope says the group submitted the application without her signature, but with the city being the lead entity for the blight study project, that caused the city concern.
