HARRISBURG – A $1 million grant announced today by Rep. Andrew Lewis (R-Dauphin) and Sen. John DiSanto (R-Dauphin/Perry) will be used to assist West Hanover Township in updating its municipal complex for use by administrative offices, public works, and the township’s water, sewer and stormwater operations.
The grant from the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program will help the township overcome deficiencies in its existing building at 7171 Allentown Boulevard. Township officials have expressed concerns about the mechanical systems, public meeting space, handicapped accessibility and security.
“This is great news for West Hanover Township, which has been making do with Band-Aids on serious construction issues for many years. A feasibility study has given the West Hanover Township Board of Supervisors options for ways to modernize operations, and this grant will help them with funding for the project,” Lewis said.
“I’m proud to join Rep. Lewis in announcing state funding for this important community project that will benefit local residents and taxpayers,” DiSanto said.
Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program grants are meant to address regional economic, cultural, civic, recreational, and historical improvement projects. The program is administered by the Office of the Budget.
