RIPLEY – Congressman Tom Reed announced last week a $200,000 rural development grant for the Town of Ripley to extend its public sewer.
“We care about making sure our municipalities have fair access to the funding necessary to finish their projects,” said Reed in a statement. “The Ripley sewer project is no different – we are proud we fought for this funding and we will continue to do so moving forward. We understand the importance of water and sewer systems across the district and how they impact the economy – they are important for residents, help to retain businesses and attract new business.”
“I greatly appreciate the additional funding Rural Development came through with,” said Ripley Town Supervisor Douglas Bowen. “This is supplemental funding that will help us moving forward.”
The funding is being provided by the Department of Agriculture as part of the Water and Environmental program.
