(Oct 27, 2022)

ASTON, Oct. 27 – State Rep. Leanne Krueger, D-Delaware, announced today that the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program has awarded Neumann University a $1 million grant to build a new hockey rink. “This is a tremendous award, not only for Neumann University, but for Aston Township and Delaware County as a whole,” Krueger said. “This grant will provide economic development for Neumann University and increased access for those who love ice hockey.” The grant will expand access for youth, collegiate and adult ice hockey, sled hockey and ice-skating programs, many of which are limited by rink availability. A conceptual design for the project includes the following features: A 94,000-square-foot arena, which includes two floors and two ice rinks. A large lobby area, 6-8 locker rooms, meeting and classroom spaces, a concessions area and 1,050 for spectator seating. A new parking area and pedestrian walkways. The grant was awarded by the RACP, a program administered by the Office of the Budget whose grants aim to bolster community development and economic activity. Read more

$16.4 million loan secured to replace sewer lines

(Oct 24, 2022)

HARRISBURG, Oct. 24 – State Reps. Leanne Krueger and David Delloso, both D-Delaware, announced today that the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority has approved a $16.45 million low-interest loan for the Central Delaware County Authority to replace sewer interceptors in Rutledge Borough. The Central Delaware County Authority said the existing sanitary sewer inceptors are 60 to 80 years old and made of reinforced concrete pipe. The pipe has many holes and cracks, which results in infiltration and inflow. Because of the increased cost of maintenance repairs, it is now more viable to re-line the interceptors rather than continuing repairs. “I am proud to have worked with the Central Delaware County Authority to secure this low-interest loan,” said Krueger. “Replacing these sewer pipes will save taxpayers money and benefit the environment be stopping untreated sewage discharge into the County’s waterways.” “The upkeep and repair for aging infrastructure costs more and more each year,” said Delloso. “Replacing this piping will benefit residents for generations to come. These repairs will protect peoples’ health by ensuring that our water systems are not polluted during wet weather.” The project will involve re-lining 60,000 feet of 8-inch to 54-inch sewer interceptors with cured-in-place piping, and 288 manholes will also be Read more
