- Rep. Wendy Fink (R-Red Lion) announced new state funding today for a municipal project in District 94.
Delta Borough was awarded a Local Share Account (LSA) grant in the amount of $608,875 for a stormwater improvement project.
“The dollars Delta Borough receives from this grant will be used to make greatly needed improvements to stormwater infrastructure throughout the municipality. Stormwater issues create costly problems for municipal leaders and residents to overcome. Preventing these incidents before they arise is key and should bring the Delta Borough Municipal Authority (DBMA) and residents of the borough some peace of mind,” said Fink.
Fink also explained LSA grants are funded by revenue collected as part of Pennsylvania’s Gaming Act, not by taxpayer dollars.
This project involves: replacing approximately 300 linear feet of storm sewer pipe and two inlets between the state line and Park Street; replacing approximately 550 linear feet of storm sewer pipe and five inlets between Park Street and Creamery Avenue; and replacing approximately 1,000 linear feet of storm sewer pipe, 13 inlets and one storm manhole between Creamery Avenue. and College Avenue.
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.
