Upgrades Coming to U.P. Communities

Two U.P. communities are receiving grants to upgrade certain infrastructure. The City of Bessemer will receive a $5,265,000 grant to upgrade their 100-year-old sewer system and the Village of Laurium will receive a $15,000 grant to help purchase a new police vehicle. U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow, Chairwoman of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, announced her support for the decision. The funding for both upgrades comes through the USDA’s Rural Development Grant program, which funds critical infrastructure within rural communities across the country.
