Senator John J. Bonacic (R/C/I-Mt. Hope) announced that he has secured $50,000, through the State Municipal Grant Program, to help the Village of Woodridge rehabilitate the Silver Lake Dam. The State Municipal Grant Program is funded as part of the Fiscal Year 2015-2016 State Budget. Work on the dam will include, in part, partial draining of the lake, installation of erosion control measures, and construction of a new concrete spillway and cut off wall.
“Infrastructure improvements are one of the most important things municipalities can do to improve the lives of their citizens,” said Senator Bonacic. “This project will help with the Village’s infrastructure, and also save the taxpayers’ money.”
“The Village of Woodridge is thrilled with this monetary assistance. It will go a long way in helping us to repair Silver Lake Dam and to bring back our lake, which is an integral part of our park system. The rebirth of Silver Lake will offer more opportunities for our residents and visitors to develop and maintain a healthy outdoor lifestyle,” said Village of Woodridge Mayor Joan Collins.
