City of Harrison Making Improvements After Securing Grants, Loans
The city of Harrison is making big improvements after it secured some grant money and loans.
They just secured a $280,000 loan to buy a new fire truck that holds more water and pumps it faster.
They also got a $15,000 grant for fire equipment and a $25,000 grant to plan for finishing their downtown streetscape.
That’s on top of $2.2 million grant the city got for water system improving and development.
“With a small community like this we don’t have the revenue coming in that even the bigger towns have and they struggle with it, but we’ve been able to do a lot of improvements. We’re really trying to make the quality of life for our Harrison residents and people that come visit us a good quality,” said City Manager & Clerk Tracey Connelly.
The city hopes to do streetscape planning over the winter and start water system improvements in the spring.
