Money coming to counties hit by hard freeze
MARQUETTE, MI-- Six Upper Peninsula counties could get a portion of $6 million from the state to repair infrastructure damaged by this winter’s polar temperatures.
Chippewa, Delta, Gogebic, Luce, Mackinac, and Marquette counties received “State of Emergency” declarations after cold temperatures and deep frost lines damaged pipes and other lines.
The Michigan Economic Development Corporation is making the money available through competitive Community Development Block Grants. It will be used to repair damaged water and sewer mains, roads, and other vital infrastructure.
Three Northern Lower Peninsula counties—Charlevoix, Cheboygan, and Emmet—will also compete for grants.
