Sunbury gets $155K toward flood mitigation
SUNBURY - The city will get money toward flood mitigation from the same pot that provided mine-reclamation money for the Anthracite Outdoor Adventure Area.
State Rep. Lynda Schlegel Culver (R-108) said the Sunbury Municipal Authority's flood mitigation project was approved by the Commonwealth Financing Authority and will be a recipient of state funding under this year's Act 13 Marcellus Legacy Fund program.
The authority's rehabilitation project was one of four projects selected under the fund's flood mitigation program. The authority will receive $155,418 to use toward the rehabilitation of its flood control system.
"With the Susquehanna River and its tributaries running through the 108th District, nearly all residents recognize the importance of the flood control system in Sunbury," Culver was quoted in a press release. "I'm happy that this funding is available to the Sunbury Municipal Authority, and that impact fees which are being collected statewide by the gas industry can go to good use."
