(FEBRUARY 10, 2011) USDA RURAL DEVELOPMENT PROVIDES $300,000 TO THE CITY OF FORDLAND

Fordland, MO, Feb 10, 2011 -- Rural Development recognized the City of Fordland with a certificate on Thursday, February 10, 2011. The City received a $400,000 loan for improvements to the wastewater system which serves the 684 residents.

“I am pleased to hear that the city of Fordland received a low-interest loan to upgrade its sewer system,” U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill said. “An up-to-date sewer system is important to the health and well-being of the community.”

Mayor Paul Farnsworth stated, “The city would like to thank Rural Development for the financial assistance. Wastewater systems are critical to maintaining a healthy and growing community. We have made a step towards future growth and economic development for the residents of Fordland thanks to everyone’s hard work and support.”

“Having an environmentally safe collection and treatment system is important to the residents and I commend all the partners for their hard work in making this project a reality,” said Janie Dunning, Missouri Rural Development State Director. “This project mirrors President Obama’s initiative and exemplifies the Rural Development mission – committed to the future of rural communities. Appreciation is extended to our federal elected officials for supporting USDA Rural Development. U.S. Senators Claire McCaskill and Roy Blunt plus U.S. Representative Vicky Hartzler have been strong proponents for the necessary funding for essential services for rural Missourians.”
