SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — Time is running out for the City of Springfield to win a $5 million grant and the city needs resident’s help.
Springfield is one of 20 cities still in the running for the Bloomberg Philanthropies Mayors Challenge. The city created a video proposal to bring emergency services to residents in both Springfield and Eugene.
Springfield Community Relations Manager Neil Laudati explained how the money would be used if the city wins.
To win the grant the city needs residents to vote. The winner will be announced in April.
