The Bowie City Council met in regular session Tuesday night approving an application for a water system grant and hearing monthly reports.
Bowie will pursue a Texas Community Development Block Grant of $275,000 to help fund a water/wastewater system improvement project from the Texas Department of Agriculture.

It would fund the installation of a water and sewer line on Jefferson Street between Nelson and Greenwood.
