Federal Grants for Tarrytown and Uvalda
Monday, 07 September 2009

September 7--  Two Montgomery County towns are among 65 Georgia communities sharing nearly $33 million dollars in federal grants for infrastructure improvements.

The city of Uvalda is getting $485,000 to make sewer improvements.  In Tarrytown, Mayor Lynette Coleman says they'll use $445,734 to provide better drinking water for the town.

"We're planning to put in a new water system.  Right now, we are buying our water from Soperton, so we will have our own well and distribution center and a new tank.  Our water is just so bad here and we have radiation in the water so we are not able to use the water here in Tarrytown.  So this means we will have fresh water in Tarrytown," the mayor promises.

Mayor Coleman says she hopes the new water system will be operating within a year.
