The following projects were approved today by the Commonwealth Financing Authority, an independent agency of the Department of Community and Economic Development:

• Liverpool Municipal Authority - more than $981,000 for replacement of a water main and nearly $496,979 for the lining and replacement of a sanitary sewer main, both in Liverpool Borough.
• Penn Township Municipal Authority - $540,000 for a waterline replacement in Penn Township.
• Oliver Township Municipal Authority - more than $122,00 to rehabilitate portions of the sanitary sewer collection system located near a railroad crossing in Oliver Township.

“These projects are important for public health and quality of life,” Rothman said. “I am happy to bring this assistance to Perry County, where it will be used to improve infrastructure and help ease the burden on local taxpayers.”

“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 our children and grandchildren.”
