◆ Alpine, Afton and Star Valley Ranch approved.
Three Star Valley municipalities will move forward with public infrastructure projects following funding from the State Land and Investment Board Water and Sewer ARPA Grant Program.
The Town of Star Valley Ranch was approved for $1.275,000 to replace the main water line on Vista Drive and regional sections of the line in that area.
Bids are expected to go out later in November and construction will take place in the spring of 2023.
Alpine was approved for $750,000 to assist with a pre-treatment and sludge handling facility waste water system.
Afton will received $1,399,024 for a sewer lagoon expansion project. The town is waiting on a final DEQ permit. Once the permit is approved, bids will be sought, possibly in January.
The State Land and Investment Board oversees and coordinates funding programs for municipalities through an application program.
