The city of Woodward is receiving $2
million in grant money to help expand a local facility and allow
Siemens Energy to expand its operations in the northwestern
Oklahoma town.
The Woodward News reports the city will receive two separate $1
million Community Development Block Grant awards.
The news comes after city commissioners approved a $3.2 million
bid from Boldt Construction for a project to build out a
52,000-square-foot city-owned facility in the Woodward Industrial
Airport.
Siemens has leased the facility for five years for use as a wind
energy distribution center.
Woodward Industrial Foundation President LaVern Phillips says
the renovations will include connecting water and sewer services,
providing air conditioning and installing a 30-ton crane, new
loading docks and a security system. The renovations should be
finished by December.
