A local community is one of five cities to receive $36 million dollars in water infrastructure funding from the Minnesota Public Facilities Authority.
Ortonville will receive $6,097,176 dollars to rehabilitate portions of the city’s aging waste water collection system and water main distribution system. Funding comes from a 20-year loan from the Drinking Water Revolving Fund of $3,419,191 and a $2,677,985 20-year loan from the Clean Water Revolving Fund. Both loans have one percent interest and are expected to save $596,001 combined, when compared to market-rate financing.
Other cities approved for funding include Columbia Heights, De Graff, Little Falls and Perham.
