Finance Committee reviews federal funding requests for local projects


WILLMAR -- The city asked congressional lobbyist David Turch last year to request $9.7 million in federal money for five local projects, including $2 million for the new wastewater conveyance and treatment system.

None of the requests has yet been approved.

City Administrator Michael Schmit said the city asked for the wastewater money, recognizing that Congress has authorized but not appropriated the original $15 million request for the $86.2 million project.
