Water improvement project rejected for block grant
SILVER CREEK -- Hanover officials have learned that the town did not receive a $400,000 Small Cities community development block grant for a water improvement project.
"Naturally, I am very disappointed," Town Supervisor Kathy Tampio said during Monday's Town Board meeting. She said there were 30 applications for public water systems and only 11 were funded.
The loss of funding means the town will need to revise the plans to install new water lines in the Irving, Sunset Bay and Hanford Bay areas. The project is currently under way. Water lines are being relined and cleaned in Hanford Bay and Sunset Bay.
Tampio said she will continue to seek funding sources.
