contained in the Environmental Review Record (ERR) on file at City of McPherson, City Hall

RELEASE OF FUNDS

The City of McPherson certifies to the State of Kansas that Thomas Brown in his capacity as

City of McPherson Mayor consents to accept the jurisdiction of the Federal Courts if an action

is brought to enforce responsibilities in relation to the environmental review process and that

these responsibilities have been satisfied. The State of Kansas’s approval of the certification

satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA and related laws and authorities and allows The City of

McPherson to use HUD/CDBG program funds.

OBJECTIONS TO RELEASE OF FUNDS

The State of Kansas will accept objections to its release of funds and the grantee certifications

for a period of 15 days following the anticipated submission date or its actual receipt of the

request (whichever is later) only if they are on one of the following bases: (a) the certification

was not executed by the Certifying Officer of the grantee; (b) the grantee has omitted a step or

failed to make a decision or finding required by HUD regulations at 24 CFR Part 58; (c) the

grant recipient or other participants in the development process have committed funds, incurred

costs or undertaken activities not authorized by 24 CFR Part 58 before approval of a release of

funds by the State of Kansas; or (d) another Federal agency acting pursuant to 40 CFR Part 1504

has submitted a written finding that the project is unsatisfactory from the standpoint of

environmental quality. Objections to the release of funds must be prepared and submitted in

accordance with the required procedures (24 CFR Part 58, Sec. 58.76) and shall be addressed to

the Kansas Department of Commerce, CDBG program, 1000 S.W. Jackson Street, Suite 100,

Topeka, KS 66612. Potential objectors should contact Commerce to verify the actual last day of
