Today, Governor Ron DeSantis announced that the Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) is awarding $2 million in Florida Job Growth Grant Funds to the City of St. Pete Beach. This funding will be used to finalize the overhaul of the City’s wastewater system to restore capacity for hotel and lodging expansion.
“The Governor’s announcement today allows us to fund phase II of the sanitary sewer expansion project – an upgrade of our master pump station that will allow anticipated new flows to exit the island for treatment. The Florida Job Growth Grant Fund is a highly competitive program specifically targeting infrastructure improvements that facilitate economic development and job creation. Our project was a great fit based on the extent of redevelopment and development activity we are anticipating.” Vince Tenaglia, Assistant City Manager of St. Pete Beach shared after the Press Conference today.
