“We are grateful to have the opportunity to work with so many great communities and help them deal with a growing infrastructure problem,” said Paul Galdes, F&V’s president. “The fact that the MEDC has recognized the need and developed this program is encouraging, but there is so much more that needs to be done in the area of public awareness and the development of funding mechanisms to fix the infrastructure problems that are mounting.
