The city applied for and received Carbon Reduction Program Grant funding of up to $200,000 for the installation of an electric vehicle charging station at the Stearns History Museum.

The charging station units will include dynamic lighting for night use, cable management systems, operational status lights and timers.

The city council is expected to approve the grant during its meeting on Monday.
