— State grant funding totaling $258,000 has been awarded to a Snyder County municipality according to Rep. David Rowe (R-Snyder/Union/Juniata/Mifflin) and Sen. Lynda Schlegel-Culver (R-27).
Perry Township is the recipient of a state Local Share Account (LSA) grant to update an existing wastewater treatment plant.
“I am glad to have been an advocate for the funding, which is provided by Pennsylvania’s Gaming Act, not by taxpayer dollars.” said Rowe. “With this greatly-needed funding, Perry Township will soon be able to initiate plans to update their municipal wastewater treatment facility.”
“I was pleased to work with Rep. Rowe to advocate for the grant funding necessary to complete this project,” Culver said. “This grant will help provide the resources necessary for maintaining a functioning wastewater system, which in the end, benefits the ratepayers of Perry Township.”
This funding will help to initiate the planning, design and permitting of needed upgrades and replacements to the wastewater treatment plant. The project will update the aged facility, correct ongoing system failures, and address challenges to comply with standards. LSA funds will be used for engineering and administrative costs.
The funding was approved by the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) today. CFA is an independent agency that holds fiduciary responsibility over the funding of programs and investments in Pennsylvania’s economic growth.
