McEachin secures $3.3 million from federal government for Petersburg capital projects
“U.S. Congressman Donald McEachin is traveling the area to celebrate federal dollars that have been earmarked for local projects. Among those awards are funds for two separate projects in Petersburg with aid totaling about $3.3 million.
One of the awards was a $2.4 million amount for improvements to the Poor Creek Sewer Service Area which is crucial for the operation of the developing Pharmaceutical cluster. The second award was a $900,000 sum for Petersburg City Public Schools to replace some of its diesel school buses with electric-powered buses through the 2021 American Rescue Plan Electric School Bus Rebates.”
