Citing a desire to avoid interaction with the federal government, the City of Eufaula’s official Facebook account today posted a “Grant Alert” that stated the city would no longer apply for any grants.

“Although this may impact the speed of future progress it will help ensure that 100% of the project money is being paid for by Eufaula, and not supported by outside entities such as the federal government.”

A woman who answered the phone at the city said she assumed the city manager posted the post, but could not confirm that until he returns from a meeting.

The post also cited “prevailing campaign rhetoric” for its stance on grants.

The city manager has not yet returned a call for comment.

UPDATE: The city manager updated his post, stating that the new policy is because of positions taken by new city councilors, and if they want the policy to change, they can change it.
