Cass Water District Funded

Virginia, IL – The Cass Rural Water District will receive more than $1.8 million to begin work on a countywide district. Congressman Ray LaHood says the funding shows the role of the federal government in helping infrastructucture projects in areas where local units of government don't have the ability to pay for them. The district will receive $1.33 million in grant money and a loan of l$468,000 from the Department of Agriculture's Rural Development. LaHood says the funding will mesh with a previous $750,000 grant to the City of Virginia for a water treatment plant.
