Coulterville gets water line grant
Coulterville has been rewarded a sizable grant to go toward its upcoming water line extension to Sparta.
The Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity announced April 5 that the village was one of the recipients of the 2020 Community Development Block Grant for Public Infrastructure.
Coulterville will receive the maximum award of $550,000. A total of $18.2 million was awarded to 34 communities across the state.
“Like many small towns across America, Coulterville faces the unfortunate reality of water infrastructure that has reached the end of its useful life, and that requires costly repairs and replacements,” said Coulterville Mayor Steve Marlow in a statement. “However, thanks to this public infrastructure funding opportunity, we’ll receive a much-needed boost to modernize our public works and ensure residents of our town can continue to count on safe and reliable water service.”
