MADISON— Governor Jim Doyle announced today that the City of Loyal, Clark County, will receive a $258,000 grant from the Community Development Block Grant–Public Facilities (CDBG-PF) program of the Department of Commerce (Commerce) to fund its waste water collection and treatment upgrade project.

“This project will allow the City of Loyal to improve and expand its waste water system,” Governor Doyle said. “I’m pleased we are able to support projects like this that will improve overall community development.”

“The City of Loyal would like to thank Governor Doyle and the State of Wisconsin for helping us fund our combined waste water treatment project with the City of Greenwood,” said Carol Lampsa, Mayor of Loyal. “The project is unique because of the cooperation of both communities striving to do the right thing for our residents.”

The City of Loyal is collaborating with the City of Greenwood to upgrade its outdated waste water system. The City of Loyal will upgrade its main lift stations, which will pump waste water to the City of Greenwood. Total project cost is $1,066,000.

Commerce administers the CDBG Program. These CDBG-PF grants play an important role in helping communities finance a wide range of projects designed to enhance the economic vitality of the community through the provision of community infrastructure, the expansion of tax base, job creation, and increased private investment in downtowns.
