Money is part of a $200 million Chapter 90 Aid
State Senator Ryan Fattman (R-Sutton) has announced that the Massachusetts Legislature recently passed a bill to provide $200 million in funding for local road and bridge repairs across the Commonwealth. The towns in Senator Fattman’s district will receive $5,862,448 of this total allotment, with Bellingham receiving $539,144.
    Amid a difficult fiscal climate, the bill maintains Chapter 90 funding at a $200 million level for key repairs for the maintenance and upkeep of municipal roads and bridges in Massachusetts. It also extends the term of the MBTA Fiscal Management Control Board, which was set to expire on June 30, 2020, for one additional year.
    “While our Commonwealth may be in the midst of a fiscally challenging season, it is crucial to provide essential Chapter 90 funds,” remarked Senator Fattman. “One of my priorities is to ensure my municipalities’ road and bridge projects maintain their timelines, and this starts with adequate funding. By authorizing this funding, the Legislature is ensuring our commitment to supporting our towns through this difficult budget cycle.”
    Funding for the rest of the Worcester-Norfolk Senate District is distributed as follows: Blackstone receives $233,746; Douglas receives $363,912; Dudley receives $430,484; Hopedale receives $171,009; Mendon receives $275,653; Milford receives $816,716; Millville receives $109,204; Northbridge receives $467,888; Oxford receives $510,422; Southbridge receives $493,541; Sutton receives $466,119; Uxbridge receives $508,888; Webster receives $475,722
