Don Rush

The city of Crisfield is working on improving its infrastructure.

City Manager Rick Pollitt told WBOC that the town has an aging problem but notes that it is not a wealthy municipality.

Pollitt said the town has received $4 million in state and federal grants and loans.

He told the television station that among the projects is its water system including two major pump stations.

Pollitt also said that another grant will help to develop a plan to deal with flooding.

Finally, he said that there is a grant to come up with a five year plan to deal with problems that range from paving the roads and upgrading the public buildings to deal with the drainage and sewer system.
