Lansdale Borough Council has approved an application for more than 348,000 dollars in Community Development Block Grants distributed by Montgomery County for the Federal Government.
The money would be used for storm water management, sewer pipe replacement and new blacktop on East 3rd Street, between Ridge and North Line Streets. Borough Director of Utilities, Jake Ziegler, says unlike some other projects, the cost of replacing curbs and sidewalks would not be shouldered by homeowners.
“We do have to go through and look at and evaluate the current sidewalk in the area. But all the curb and sidewalk work that would have to be done under the project is covered under the project funds, so there will be no out pocket expense for the residents in that section.”
The project will require a 10 percent match from Lansdale Borough.
