City Denied $477,000 Grant Promised Three Years Ago
Back in January of 2008, then-United States Senator Steve Kagen ceremoniously announced a matching funds grant of nearly $500,000 to the City of Peshtigo to help finance improvements to the water and sewer utility system. The EPA grant for water-related infrastructure improvements awarded to the city was officially announced by the Department of the Interior on Feb. 21, 2008.
But there were complications, and the money never arrived. Mayor Allen Krizenesky, at the City Council meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 4 had the unwelcome task of advising aldermen that it apparently never will.
Remember all those promises Steve Kagen made to everyone in the 8th district? Seems the Obama's EPA pulled the plug.To all those people who voted democrat, looks liked you got screwed.
