The renovation will alleviate issues caused by numerous additions made to the original 100-year-old public works building. The completed $1.5 million project is expected to house borough street department vehicles, a salt shed and stone bins, an environmentally safe fueling station, locker, shower and break rooms for employees, and areas for storage of the borough’s equipment.“I have been working closely with Fountain Hill officials, particularly Executive Administrator Tony Branco, for several months on this revitalization project,” said state Rep. Jeanne McNeill, D-Lehigh. “I am excited that Governor Wolf has supported this project. The commonwealth’s partnership will be a big help and a positive step for the borough.”“It’s an honor when I get to work with the municipalities in my district on projects I know will improve the quality of life of their residents,” said Senator Lisa Boscola. “The Borough of Fountain Hill has made this project a priority due to their concerns with the current structure and the need to better provide more efficient services to their residents. I want to thank the Governor for recognizing that as well, and I’m looking forward to watching the project advance.”Supported through the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP), funding will support critical expansion projects, some of which will provide opportunities for additional economic development.
