According to a report by Mike Conroy of the Montgomery Village News, District 39 Senator Nancy King provided an update on the recently finished Legislative Session, and her success in securing bond funds for the community. Per the report, Senator King, who is also a long-time Village resident, noted she was grateful for the partnership she has with MVF staff and was thrilled to bring the funds to Montgomery Village.
“Senator King said after the Federal stimulus and a new tax on online purchases, the state was able to extend significantly more bond funds than in previous years. As such, she was able to secure $2.5 million in state bond monies for projects in Montgomery Village.
Bond funds will be used for solar projects at MVF facilities ($800,000); improvements to South Valley Park ($1,000,000); and for the Watkins Mill Recreation Area renovation ($700,000). She recalled other recent solar projects, and noted that Montgomery Village was in good company and on trend with this type of project. She was also able to secure funds for Village-based CSAAC and Stedwick Elementary School for additional projects in the community.”
