Parrottsville grant
State Senator Steve Southerland (R-Morristown) and State Representative Jeremy Faison (R-Cosby) have announced that the Town of Parrottsville will receive a $33,250 Infrastructure Planning grant from the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development (TNECD). The grant is part of the Rural Economic Opportunity (REO) fund designed to better address unique water and sewer needs of rural Tennessee counties, particularly those with financially distressed water systems. “I am pleased Parrottsville will receive these funds to help better serve the community and plan for future improvements to their utility system,” said Sen. Southerland. “I appreciate the work of local officials for securing these funds and look forward to the improvements that will result.” Grant funding will help utility districts better serve their customers, develop capital improvement plans and develop better applications for funding to assist with additional upgrades. Funds can be used for water loss studies and the investigation and/or system mapping for water or wastewater systems. “This announcement is great news for our community because these funds will help address critical needs for the Town of Parrottsville,” said Chairman Faison. “I am pleased to have supported our local leaders in securing this funding, and I will continue to fight for additional resources to improve the health and overall quality of life for our citizens.”
