Wouldn't it be more accurate to say that the council decided not to APPLY for the grant? While grants are often "promised," I've never hear of an outright gift without an application process. This is public money after all. I suspect that the council (under legal advisement of course)chose not to apply for this money because it would further expose the utter lack of oversight responsibility demonstrated recently with other grant funded projects. In other words, it would be embarrassing as heck to get turned down. The Mayor and council have plenty of egg on their faces already.
