— Rep. Brad Roae (R-Crawford/Erie) today announced that almost $900,000 in Local Share Account grants from gaming revenues were awarded by the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) for critical water and sewer projects within the 6th Legislative District.
Springboro Borough received $680,940 for a drinking water filtration improvement project at its water plant, and Conneaut Lake Borough was awarded $200,000 for sanitary sewer rehabilitation along Sixth Street.
“I’m pleased to support these two important projects by advocating for them with the House Republican delegate to the CFA,” Roae said. “Infrastructure projects are expensive but necessary in order to ensure the health and safety of area residents. I will continue to fight to make sure our area is not forgotten when funding is distributed statewide.”
Act 71 of 2004
provides for the distribution of gaming revenues through the CFA to support projects of public interest within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. To receive funding from the CFA, it takes a majority vote of the board and a unanimous vote of the four members appointed by the legislative caucuses. More specifically, this means that House Republicans, House Democrats, Senate Republicans and Senate Democrats all must agree or a project does not receive funding. Both parties and both chambers must compromise with the governor to develop the list of projects that are approved.
The 6th Legislative District includes the city of Meadville; Beaver, Conneaut, East Fairfield, East Fallowfield, East Mead, Fairfield, Greenwood, Hayfield, North Shenango, Pine, Randolph, Sadsbury, South Shenango, Spring, Summerhill, Summit, Union, Vernon, Wayne, West Fallowfield, West Mead and West Shenango townships; and Cochranton, Conneaut Lake, Conneautville, Linesville and Springboro boroughs in Crawford County and Conneaut, Elk Creek and Springfield townships and Albion and Cranesville boroughs in Erie County.
