BRENT GETTING $450,000 GRANT FOR SEWER REPAIRS
Gov. Robert Bentley today announced the city of Brent is getting some funding for sewer repairs thanks to a Community Development Block Grant.
The $450,000 grant, along with $90,000 from the city of Brent, will go toward replacing a main sewer line serving about 600 residents.
“Infrastructure improvements like this are important to any future growth or economic development,” Bentley said in a statement. “Industries are looking at areas like this to start building and without solid infrastructure and a good workforce they are less likely to locate to an area. We are proud to provide this grant to the city of Brent needs which will assist with much needed improvements.”
The grants are available for cities through the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs, and the program offers communities help with meeting their development needs.
