A major road connector project in Waverly is getting closer to getting off the ground. Mayor Greg Kempton says a Route 220 Connector Road for truck traffic needs to be completed, which would cost $15 million.
All but $3 million is accounted for through state and federal funding, and now local government must fill-in the gap.
Kempton says Waverly Council is being asked to make a specific commitment at their next meeting. That would then set into motion a three reading process, that would make that commitment binding.
Kempton says just one aspect of that funding, would be to use TIFF financing.
The state and federal government already has $12 million tied to the project, and needs to see the difference made up by local government.
