Snyder: Redstone Twp. awarded $17,500 planning grant

Grant to help fund wastewater plan for section of U.S. 40

CARMICHAELS, Sept. 20 – Redstone Township has been awarded a $17,500 state grant to assist with wastewater planning along a section of U.S. 40, state Rep. Pam Snyder, D-Greene/Fayette/Washington, announced today.

“During my time in office I’ve always sought to help our local communities find funding for projects like this, which otherwise would have been paid for by rate increases or taxpayers,” Snyder said. “From water and sewer projects to local parks and schools, I’ve worked to bring millions in state investments to our communities.”

The $17,500 grant was approved today by the Commonwealth Financing Authority, an independent agency of the Department of Community and Economic Development.

The grant will help fund revisions to the township’s existing sewage plan, which will improve wastewater service along the U.S. Route 40 corridor, from Lafayette Memorial Park to Stone Church Road. The previous plan utilizes on-lot disposal systems; the updated plan will improve wastewater service within this area.
