110th District State Representative Scott Dianda

Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – 110th District State Representative Scott Dianda is continuing to urge Republican leaders in Lansing to take up a measure he introduced in April to provide financial assistance to U.P. communities struggling with the frozen water line issues.

The Calumet Democrat says extreme cold weather this winter and into the spring has forced local municipalities to cover numerous unforeseen expenses stemming from the deep frost.

Dianda’s bill would designate $10 million in grants to communities in counties that have issued local states of emergency, which would nearly cover the $10.1 million in estimated damages to the region’s infrastructure.

Dianda says the extreme weather has put the U.P. in a state of emergency and the state needs to designate the funds to help.
