Milledgeville City Council plans to use half million dollar grant to repair sewer line
The Georgia Department of Community Affairs awarded 79 grants in the state. Milledgeville Main Street said the city received a 2015 Community Development Block Grant for $500,000. The money will pay for repairs to a failing sewer system in the Pine Avenue Target Area.
Milledgeville Main Street representatives said Georgia’s CDBG program supports projects in small and rural communities that create jobs and assist low and moderate-income citizens every year. Awards ranging from $282,435 to $800,000 go toward specific projects like water, sewer, drainage or street improvements, revitalization of targeted neighborhoods, and construction of health facilities, as well as senior citizen and youth centers.
