Multi-Million Dollar Project to Improve Drainage in McAllen
MCALLEN – The City of McAllen will move forward with a multi-million project to improve drainage.
The Westway Heights neighborhood will receive $4.2 million for drainage improvements; about half of these funds come from FEMA.
A resident who lives in the neighborhood tells CHANNEL 5 NEWS he also dealt with flooding six years ago due to only having one drain.
This project will be a part of a larger city-wide investment.
Funds for the city will come from three sources:
- $21 million bond to borrow money approved by taxpayers
- $5 million in grants from FEMA
- Average of $1.50/month drainage fee implemented by city
