Funding will help company replace water line
Rep. Brandon Markosek January 25, 2022 | 3:51 PM
MONROEVILLE, Jan. 25 – State Rep. Brandon Markosek, D-Allegheny, announced today that Pitcairn Fire Co. #1 has been awarded $40,000 in state funding.
The company will use the investment for water/sewer to replace a water line. The project includes evacuating and digging up the existing line, back filling, and fees for engineering and permitting.
“I’m pleased to have helped secure funding for our firefighters in Pitcairn,” Markosek said. “Our volunteer firefighters never hesitate to respond when called, and their selfless efforts remains an inspiring example of what it means to serve a community.
“I also know how difficult it can be for them to raise the funds to buy needed equipment, or undertake a major project like this, which is why I am thrilled that they are receiving this support from the state to hopefully get this project done. That’s also why I’ve backed legislation to get our community fire and EMS companies financial assistance during the COVID crisis and have always supported our first responders.”
The state Department of Community and Economic Development distributed the funding.
