BUCKHANNON MUNICIPAL BUILDING COMMISSION APPROVED FOR RURAL DEVELOPMENT LOAN

Morgantown, WV, Feb 28, 2013 -- State Director Bobby Lewis announced that USDA Rural Development approved a Community Facilities Direct Loan of $765,000 to City of Buckhannon Municipal Building Commission, Upshur County, WV.

Rural Development funds will be used to participate in the construction of a conference center as part of the new West Virginia Army National Guard Readiness Center on Brushy Fork Road in Upshur County. The Building Commission will finance certain fixtures, equipment and improvements for the conference center as well as a waterline extension to the new facility.

"As consideration for the City of Buckhannon's financial participation, the City will have the ability to utilize the facility under a lease agreement with the West Virginia Army National Guard," explained Lewis.
