Cash Flows into Bolivar Sewers

The City of Bolivar will receive $389,197 for Sewer System Improvements through Community Development Block Grant (CBDG) funds administered by the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development (ECD). The Bolivar community received a check presented by ECD Commissioner Bob Rolfe and Deputy Governor Jim Henry.
“This grant is a great investment into the City of Bolivar and will strengthen the community by improving its infrastructure,” said Senator Dolores Gresham. “Though improvements to our sewer system are not the most exciting projects, it is crucial for community health and safety. I appreciate the work of local officials in Bolivar to secure this grant.”
The grant will be used to improve sewer service through the rehabilitation of a sewer lift station, manholes, and sewer lines.
“With the assistance of the CDBG funds, each grantee is taking the initiative to enhance their community, which will in turn create more economic development opportunities for the members of those communities,” Rolfe said. “I want to congratulate the recipients on receiving these grants and look forward to seeing each of them continue to succeed.”
