(City of Holtville awarded grant funds)…The funds will be presented at a ceremony Wednesday.
The over $248,000 award will be presented by State Senator Ben Hueso on behalf of the State of California’s Strategic Growth Council under the Sustainable Communities Planning Grant and Incentives Program. The presentation will be made at a ceremony beginning at 10:30 Wednesday morning at the Holtville City Hall, in the Gazebo. The grant is funded by Proposition 84, the Safe Drinking Water, Water Quality and Supply, Flood Control, River and Coastal Protection Bond Act of 2006. Hueso says the funding is essential in achieving many of Holtville’s infrastructure and transportation goals while protecting natural resources. The Senator said it was a win-win for all.
