USDA gives Hornersville millions in funding for sewage, safety improvements

HORNERSVILLE, MO (KAIT) – United States Department of Agriculture Rural Development has awarded Hornersville grant money to improve the city.

The city is using the money to purchase a new police patrol car and update the wastewater treatment facility in Hornersville.

The city received a total of $2.9 million, using a $10,300 Community Facility Grant to buy a 2009 Ford Crown Victoria patrol car for the Hornersville Police Department's full-time police chief and four part-time officers.

Police Chief JoBeth Patterson said the new car is added security.

"Now there's one for back-up more or less."

A grant of $1,437,000, and a $1,500,000 loan are being used for the wastewater treatment facility.

"The old sewer system that we got is outdated," said Hornersville mayor William Foresythe.

Mayor Foresythe expects to complete the treatment facility project in about two years.

"The ball's rolling. The engineers are doing their surveys, and marking everything off, and trying to get the location for the new lagoon," he said.

He said the construction in the city will reach great lengths, but so will an environmentally friendly sewer system.

"They're going to see a bunch of streets tore up. They're going to see a bunch of inconvenience. They're going to see probably the same thing Senath saw last few years when they was getting everything upgraded. A lot of inconvenience, but after it's all said and done, it'll be worth it."
