The politicians helped secure the funds to improve local townships.

Two politicians from Bucks County have announced the acquisition of a large sum of state funds, which will benefit local towns. Staff writers at MyChesCo wrote about the funds.

Senator Steve Santarsiero and Representative Tim Brennan have announced $1,193,959 in state funds that have been gathered from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development’s Local Share Account Statewide Program. The funs will be used for community improvement projects in Doylestown and Solebury Townships.

$1,000,000 of the funds will be used for improvements at Neshaminy Manor, while the remaining $193,959 will be used for Intersection Upgrades at Route 202 and Lower Mountain Road.

“This is such a critically important grant and I speak for all 3 commissioners with gratitude,” said Diane Ellis-Marseglia, Vice-Chair of the Bucks County Board of Commissioners.

“This building has become an eyesore, cannot be restored, and it blocks any economic development or improvements in that area. The County would not have been able to tackle this project without help from Senators Santarsiero and Representative Brennan.”
