Congresswoman Elissa Slotkin (D-Holly) will meet with officials in Pinckney and Mason next week to discuss federal funds her office helped to secure for local projects identified as priorities.
In Pinckney, Slotkin successfully advocated for $2 million in direct federal funding to complete a “multi-modal pathway” along Dexter-Pinckney Road. The funding, which had been sought for many years by officials in both the village of Pinckney and Putnam Township, will create a safe walkway along a main thoroughfare that will connect two schools, several subdivisions, Main Street (M36) and the LakeLands Trail.
Meanwhile, in Mason, Slotkin helped to secure $3.5 million in direct federal funding for improvements and expansion for that city’s wastewater treatment plant, which hasn’t been upgraded since 1976. City leaders determined it is not equipped to handle the current needs of the growing community.
Slotkin will meet with officials in both communities during visits Monday afternoon.
