Mayor and City Officials take Congressman Simpson on a Tour to See Project Sites

tour 2

The City of Pocatello wants to again thank Congressman Mike Simpson for taking the time to come out and tour some of our project sites. 

Mayor Brian Blad and other City officials took Simpson through the underpass in Historic Downtown Pocatello and up to Johnny Creek. Simpson's work in community project funding has helped both projects. 

The underpass has had $5.7 million appropriated to it for improvement efforts. Bids for the project will be opening on October 24. 

And then to the Johnny Creek Sewer Appropriations project, which Simpson is looking to fund. The goal of the project up Johnny Creek is to bring sewer services to approximately 200 homes that are currently on septic systems. For this project, Simpson has requested $1.75 million, but still needs to be passed in Congress.
