The Hendersonville City Council is urging the public to use an online survey to suggest how the city should spend $4.5 million in federal American Rescue Plan Act money.

The City Council’s vision is to use ARP dollars to fund transformative projects that address difficult community needs, the city said in a news release. Before selecting specific projects to fund, council members want to hear from the community to help determine priorities.
