Assistant Majority Leader Paul J. Donato, and his colleagues in the Malden Delegation, State Senator Jason Lewis, Representative Paul Brodeur and Representative Steven Ultrino, are pleased to announce the appropriation of $914,807 to the City of Malden in Chapter 90 Funding. The funds are issued from the Transportation Bond and will provide emergency street and sidewalk repair.
"The State Legislature recognized the adverse effect this past winter had on our city's infrastructure as well as on the DPW budget," said Leader Paul J. Donato. "These funds will go a long way in helping Malden residents see necessary street and road repairs."
"I'm pleased to see the City of Malden receiving these much needed funds for street and sidewalk repairs," said Senator Jason Lewis. "Especially after the toll this winter has taken on our communities' infrastructure, it is critical for state government to be a supportive partner with local governments in ensuring that our neighborhoods are safe for motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians."
"Safety is a top priority, and I am pleased we are making these funds available to Malden after this horrendous winter," said Representative Paul Brodeur.
"If you are driving or walking around Malden, you can see the devastating impact this winter has had on the quality of our roads," said Representative Steven Ultrino. "This funding will assist the city in making repairs to Malden's infrastructure after a very tough couple of months."
