WINFIELD | Town officials approved spending a total of $10,000 as the local match to grant funding of $50,000 for the study of a proposed bike-hike trail in town.

The $10,000 local match will be paid from three separate sources, including $4,000 from the Redevelopment Commission; $3,000 from the Storm Water Board and $3,000 from the Town Council.

The trail is intended to help make the town more friendly to bicycle and foot traffic, with sidewalks along main roads and a network of off-road bike-hike trails, among other amenities.

The $50,000 in grant funding is from the federal Creating Livable Communities program.
