State lawmakers applaud $$ for Harwinton sewer collection rehab

HARWINTON – Harwinton state lawmakers are applauding the release of $464,000 in state funding for sewer collection rehabilitation. This will be matched by $96,000 from the town.

“This investment in key infrastructure will pay long-term dividends for Harwinton and local taxpayers,” Sen. Lisa Seminara said. “We continue to work closely with First Selectman Mike Criss in order to address Harwinton’s needs.”

“As Harwinton’s voice in Hartford, we work as a team to advocate for the town, its businesses and its taxpayers,” Sen. Henri Martin said. “We appreciate the governor’s attention to these needed improvements in Harwinton which aim to improve the quality of life in town.”

“I, along with the entire Harwinton delegation, applaud this grant allocation to improve outdated sections of Harwinton’s sewer collection system. This is a budgetary item that can often be over looked, but this allocation will provide security to the community’s infrastructure, allowing waste to be properly disposed of,” Rep. John Piscopo said.

The grant is provided through the Small Town Economic Assistance Program (STEAP), a state program managed by the Office of Policy and Management (OPM) that delivers grants to small towns for economic development, community conservation, and quality-of-life capital projects.
