Grant Sought for Trumbull Sewer Projects

Trumbull County Commissioners are continuing efforts to get residents tapped into a sewer system at an affordable rate.

Commissioners approved applying for a $250,000 Appalachian Regional Commission Grant as part of phase two of the Scott Street project in Newton Falls.

Over the last five years, Trumbull County has completed $40 million in sanitary sewer projects.  The EPA has required $80 million.

Commissioner Frank Fuda said the grant money is a necessity to complete the projects.

“We have to get grant money for these people to afford the projects,” said Fuda. “These are all projects that they are required to pay for. They are not completely funded by anyone, but the $250,000 will bring it down to a level they can afford.”

The county has $20 million in projects they will be working on this summer, including a $10.7 million project in Kinsman and a $4 million project in Hubbard Township.
