Lansdale officials are disappointed but not surprised that their application for a Community Development Block Grant was turned down by Montgomery County this year.
The Borough was looking for 303,000 dollars for the reconstruction of East 3rd Street including new curbs, sidewalks, storm sewers and blacktop. Jake Ziegler is the Borough Director of Utilities.
“We’ve done very well with community development grants over the years and I guess it has to be some time to be your turn not to get a grant.”
Ziegler says the Borough will be back in the hunt next year with an application for the next round of Community Development Block Grant Funding.
