CAIRO, Georgia (WTXL) – The city of Cairo was approved on Friday for a loan that will help the city improve its sanitation infrastructure.
The $ 800,000 loan is from the Environmental Finance Authority of Georgia through its Clean Water State Revolving Fund and was announced by State Senator Dean Burke (R – Bainbridge) and State Representative Darlene Taylor (R – Thomasville).
Senator Burke said the loan would help Cairo continue to protect and improve the state’s water resources and benefit the community as a whole.
“The CWSRF loan will go a long way in meeting the needs of our community and paving the way for environmental responsibility,” said Senator Burke. “This loan will help us continue to protect and improve the state’s water resources, and will benefit our community as a whole. “
Representative Taylor added that the timing could not have been better, as it goes hand in hand with the city’s development plans.
“I am very happy that the city of Cairo has secured the loan from the State Revolving Fund for Water Sanitation,” said Representative Taylor. “This will benefit the whole community and will be decisive for future development. “
