The City of La Porte is the recent recipient of a partnership grant from Horizon Bank, according to Mayor Tom Dermody.

Horizon Bank awarded the city $20,000 to make improvements throughout the community.

“Horizon Bank has been an incredible community partner,” Dermody said. “We are looking to make some major improvements here in La Porte, and we can’t do it alone. It takes the support of local organizations to make changes happen, and we are so grateful to have the backing of Horizon Bank as we can continue our work to improve our city and underscore our new ‘Livin’ the Lake Life’ slogan.”

Dermody said the funds will be used for several projects, including updates to the city’s website, colorful pavement designs and beautification efforts on Clear Lake. He said residents can follow the progress of these project by following the City of La Porte’s Facebook page.
