BONO, AR (KAIT) - The Craighead County Quorum Court unanimously approved applying for a nearly $300,000 grant Monday night to put a trail around Bono Lake.

If approved, the Transportation Alternatives Program grant will be mostly federally funded.

Craighead County Judge Assistant Tony Thomas told Region 8 News Craighead County would pay approximately $50,000 of the total cost. The grant is an 80/20 match.

According to Thomas, the grant money would support a trail around the perimeter of Bono Lake. It would complement the bike trails that were installed by the Northeast Arkansas Trails Association.
