(NASHVILLE), October 11, 2019 – State Senator Ken Yager (R-Kingston) and Representative Ron Travis (R-Dayton) announced today that Spring City will receive $525,000 through Community Development Block Grants (CDBG).   Yager and Windle made the announcement after receiving the information from the Department of Economic and Community Development (ECD). 

The grant is to be used to repair or replace sewer lines, flow monitors, and sludge pumps in the Spring City sewer system.

“Infrastructure is very important to the well-being of our citizens and the economic development of our county,” said Senator Yager.  “I am pleased that this money has been funded to take care of the needed projects for sewer and water treatment. We appreciate Governor Lee and Commissioner Rolfe for their assistance in acquiring this grant, as well as our local officials for their work on securing these funds. We were pleased to support it.”

“With this community development block grant, our local leaders will have the resources they need to ensure our infrastructure meets the demands of our citizens and maintain exceptional management in Spring City,” said Rep. Travis. “Congratulations to our local elected officials and leaders on securing this important grant funding, and I will continue to provide assistance as needed.”

The funds were allocated under a procedure authorized by the Tennessee General Assembly.  ECD administers the grant program based on priorities set at the local level where community needs are best known.
