BLAKELY, GA (WALB) - Folks in Blakely will see improvements to the sewage system this year.
The city has received Community Development Block Grants for the past 15 years.
That money continues to be used to upgrade the sewage system put in more than 60 years ago.
This year's $500,000 will be used near the jail.
Blakely mayor, Anthony Howard, said the sewage problems on Jesse Johnson Drive, Day Street and Love Street should be resolved this year.
"It helps the people who live in the area and it helps the city with the overall city sewage," said Howard.
Howard said the work is much needed, and he is grateful for the grant each year.
