Working with the current City Council and Board of Works, the City of Brazil has moved forward.
There is much more work to be done, and this is why I have chosen to run for City Council.
Some of the projects the current administration has accomplished include:
* In May of 2006, the city received a grant for $1,435,350, to help with revitalization. To date, the city has constructed seven new homes and rehabilitated one additional home,
* City officials worked in conjunction with county officials to pave Pinckley Street, saving citizens approximately $50,000 by not contracting it out,
* In May 2010, the city received a grant for $2,444,872. This money was used for improvements to the water mains, water meters, fire hydrants and installation of a new 750,000-gallon elevated tank at Craig Park.
The city also installed a new booster station and the Supervisory Control and Dada Acquisition (SCADA) system, and
* Early 2011, the sidewalk project was completed.
The city will continue to maintain and repair sidewalks on a regular basis.
Street paving is a priority, as money becomes available, officials have begun the process of paving. Replacing old water lines with new is a must to ensure a newly paved street does not have to be disturbed, because of a water leak.
I would appreciate your support in the upcoming election.
