    Vt. towns receive

    aid for projects

    MONTPELIER — The Vermont congressional delegation said two Vermont towns will receive grants for rural development projects.

    The grants, totaling more than $257,000, come from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and were awarded to the towns of Greensboro and Brattleboro.

    U.S. Sens. Patrick Leahy and Bernard Sanders and U.S. Rep. Peter Welch said in a joint statement that the federal investments will help to strengthen Vermont communities.

    The Greensboro Fire Department will receive $251,000 to construct a new well, power source, pump and control building. Greensboro experienced strain on its existing system in 2012, which required community members to boil water.

    More than $6,000 was awarded to the Brattleboro Area Farmers Market to help it purchase a permanent location.
