HED: Saltillo gets ARC grant for sewer work

SALTILLO – The Appalachian Regional Commission has approved a $90,000 grant to assist with sewer improvements in Saltillo.

The grant was announced Tuesday by 1st District U.S. Rep. Roger Wicker and U.S. Sens. Thad Cochran and Trent Lott.

The grant will be used to extend a sewer line to the southern portion of Saltillo to connect 42 residential customers and several businesses that plan to expand and create 50 jobs.

The total cost of the project is $220,000 with the remainder being provided by a $130,000 loan from the Department of Agriculture’s Rural Development Office.
