Corman Announces $18,173 for Haldeman Park, Juniata County

(HARRISBURG) – Thompsontown Borough will receive $18,173 in state funds to address drainage issues at Haldeman Park, Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman (R-34) announced today.

“Haldeman Park is a beautiful community park with walking trails, playgrounds and sports fields. Making these improvements to the drainage will deal with an issue of standing water and concerns about possible mosquito-borne illnesses,” Senator Corman said.

Senator Corman said the grant was awarded by the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) under its Greenways, Trails and Recreation Funding Program. The Borough plans to install a new inlet drainage box and piping as well as reseed the area between the walking trail and ballparks. The project will fix a standing water problem in the park that has created a mosquito health risk to the public. The total project cost is $21,380.
