Each year the Village of Pleasantville Mayor and Council work with state, federal and local sources for grant money.  Over the past few decades, the village has been able to secure over $2 million dollars of grant money for many different projects.  From water lines, street improvements, water tower updates as well as a second new water tower, ADA compliant ramps and restrooms, and new street signs mandated by the state.  Below are some of the recent grants the village has obtained, grants that have been awarded but projects are not completed, and grants that they are applying for. 

There is a lot of behind the scenes work for these grants and your mayor and council work hard to ensure the village is awarded as much grant money as possible.
