Seek $1.2 Million
To Expand Sewer
At BG Complex

ommissioners last week took the initial steps to apply for almost $1.2 million in state aid to expand water and sewage facilities at the county's Blooming Grove Complex.
The aim is to allow for further expansion of governmental and commercial development at the site.
A pair of resolutions passed last Wednesday triggered the application for two funding streams from the state Dept. of Community & Economic Development.
The larger one is for $946,277 under the H2O PA Water Supply, Sanitary Sewer and Storm Water Program. Through the resolution, the commissioners allocated and committed cash match funding in the anticipated amount of $1,543,821 for this project.
This money would go toward expansion of the wastewater treatment plant in Blooming Grove.
The other grant application is for $170,000 from the PA Small Water & Sewer program for the Blooming Grove Complex third well addition. The commissioners committed $30,000 as matching cash funding in anticipation of receiving this second grant...For more information pick up a copy at a local vendor or subscribe.

Official Paper More Than
Forty Years

MILFORD — Although it has been publishing much, much longer, the Pike County Dispatch has been the newspaper of record for the County of Pike for more than 40 years. That means the Dispatch is the place to go to find out about public meetings, estate notices, bids, public hearings, real estate sales and transactions, and Sheriff sales.

The Pike County Commissioners listed the Dispatch as an official newspaper for legal notices during their opening meeting of 2014, and once again, during their annual reorganization meetings on the first business day of the New Year, most of the other municipalities in Pike County followed suit. So far, Milford and Matamoras Boroughs, and Westfall, Dingman, Delaware, Shohola, Blooming Grove. Milford and Lehman Townships have made it their business to have the Dispatch as an official newspaper.

So make it your business to keep up with all the news in Pike to print, including official business and legal notices from your town.
