The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is investing $52,500 for community infrastructure and equipment in the city of Morgan.
The city of Morgan will use a $17,500 Community Facilities Grant to purchase essential equipment for the city of Morgan Street Department. The city’s existing maintenance truck has high mileage, requiring regular costly maintenance and is approaching the end of useful life.
Additionally, the city of Morgan will use a $35,000 Community Facilities Grant to purchase and install streetlights on Main Street. During a recent infrastructure improvement project, it was determined the electric cables and streetlights are in poor condition, provide inadequate lighting and need to be replaced. This project will help the city purchase a new maintenance vehicle with a snow blade and also replace aging street light infrastructure, providing safe roads for Morgan’s nearly 900 residents to travel on.
Funding for today’s announcement was made available through the $150 million in grants included in the Additional Supplemental Appropriations for Disaster Relief Act signed into law on June 6, 2019.
