Fairmont City Council accepted two grants Tuesday night that will help in sprucing up parts of the city.

A $10,000 Governor's Participation Grant will go toward the Fairmont Community Partnership and its development projects along Gaston and Virginia Avenues. 

City council said it's pleased with the projects that are already underway in the Fairmont area. 

"They have been buying properties. Rehabilitating houses, duplexes, building new single family homes so that $10,000 will just kind of go into that entire program and help them further their development plans for Virginia Avenue," said Kathy Wyrosdick, director of planning.

The second grant will be given to the Historic Review Commission for rehabilitating buildings in the historical district.
