Sankey Announces Grant for Cambria County Swimming Pool Improvements
10/25/2016
           
HASTINGS
- State Rep. Tommy Sankey (R-Cambria/Clearfield) is pleased to announce funding has been secured to support the Hastings Municipal Authority’s plan to make major improvements to the borough’s public swimming pool. The $100,000 grant has been secured through the Commonwealth Financing Authority’s (CFAs) Greenways, Trails and Recreation program, one of seven programs funded through Marcellus Shale Act 13 revenue.

“The program is funded through impact fees associated with Marcellus drilling,” Sankey said. “The revenue from these fees, which were enacted as part of Act 13 of 2012, may be used only for one of the seven programs.”

The majority of the grant will be used to replace the pool’s 64-year-old pump house and filter room with a new energy-efficient pump, filtration system, chlorinator and electrical system. The remainder of the money will support construction of a shade pavilion and ADA improvements to the restrooms, walkways and parking area.

“The pool draws visitors from Hastings Borough and seven surrounding municipalities,” added Sankey. “The local community has done what it can as far as fundraising is concerned, and this grant should help keep the facility from having to close its doors.”

The CFA was established in 2004 as an independent agency of the Department of Community and Economic Development to administer Pennsylvania's economic stimulus packages. The seven grant programs to which revenue may be directed are Abandoned Mine Drainage Abatement; Baseline Water Quality; Flood Mitigation; Orphaned and Abandoned Wells; Sewage Facilities; Greenways, Trails and Recreation; and Watershed Restoration and Protection.

Questions about this or any legislative issue should be directed to Sankey’s Hastings district office at (814) 247-6210, his Osceola Mills office at (814) 339-6544 or his Clearfield office at (814) 765-0609.
