HARRISBURG – State Sen Judy Ward (R- 30) and Rep. Perry Stambaugh (R-Perry, Juniata) announced today the approval of $548,911 in state assistance for two Juniata County projects.
The two projects were approved by the Commonwealth Financing Authority:
Port Royal Municipal Authority: $226,689
The grant will provide funds for the Milford Street Utility Line rehabilitation project in Port Royal Borough.
Thompsontown Municipal Authority: $322,222
The funds will provide for renovations to Well #2 at Haldeman Park in Thompsontown Borough.
“These water infrastructure projects ensure residents have clean water coming through their faucets and showers, and wastewater leaves their homes to be treated at a facility,” Ward said. “These grants help local municipalities provide one of the essential functions of government for local residents.”
“The upgrades being paid for with this funding will help ensure quality water and wastewater services for communities across the 86th State House District,” notes Stambaugh. “These infrastructure improvements will provide benefits not only for residents today but also for our children and grandchildren.”
