PERRY TOWNSHIP – Senator David G. Argall (R-29) and Representative Jerry Knowles (R-124) today announced Perry Township will receive $154,012 through Pennsylvania’s Department of Community and Economic Development’s H2O PA program.
“During these tough economic times, our infrastructure is a vital part of our communities,” said Argall. “I’m pleased to see Perry Township receive this necessary funding to maintain and improve their water sanitation efforts. This grant will go towards the installation of a sewage collection system to connect with Shoemakersville for waste water treatment. I applaud the efforts of the members of Perry Township’s Municipal Authority to reach out to Representative Knowles’ and my offices to ensure this funding would be brought to Perry Township.”
Representative Knowles continued, “This grant will enable Perry Township to undertake projects which will benefit local residents and businesses. This grant makes it clear that although the Commonwealth is facing a difficult financial situation, protecting our environment and creating a solid foundation for growth must be priorities.”
The H2O PA Act was established by the General Assembly in July 2008. The Act provides for single-year or multi-year grants to municipalities or municipal authorities to assist with the construction of important drinking water, sanitary sewer and storm sewer projects.
