Florida Boosts Rural Infrastructure Fund

A brand new Florida legislation signed by Governor Ron DeSantis will increase the state’s Rural Infrastructure Fund program, awarding over $15 million to 5 rural communities, in line with an article by Samantha Neely within the Fort Myers Information-Press. Based mostly on the legislation, HB 1209, counties thought of “fiscally constrained” may have their total venture prices lined by the state.

Neely writes that “Awards for the RIF program embrace tens of millions to 2 northern counties and three cities sprinkled all through the state.” Initiatives receiving funding embrace a wastewater therapy plant in Suwanee County, water and wastewater therapy services in Jackson County, and stormwater and different water therapy upgrades within the cities of Macclenny, Fort Meade, and Umatilla.
