Pilot Mountain Receives Grant

Pilot Mountain is getting $300,000 through a state grant to help with work on their water and sewer systems. The Board of Commissioners voted to accept the state Asset Inventory and Assessment Grant, with the money split evenly between the water and sewer systems. The $300,000 state reserve grant will be used for engineering fees. The town is looking to map the entire water and sewer system, assess pipes and line conditions. The town will use $5,000 of its own money to cover the grant closing fees.
