|   City News

Mayor Domenic J. Sarno and Chief of Staff Tom Ashe met with Ward 8 City Councilor Zaida Govan today to continue discussions on the many neighborhood projects and initiatives throughout the city, especially in her district and ward of Indian Orchard.

Mayor Sarno stated, “I want to thank Councilor Govan for always taking the time to sit down and talk with me about working together and discussing the interests of her ward and our city.  We have numerous positive and vibrant projects underway and planned across the city, including many in our Indian Orchard neighborhood.  As part of my administrations efforts to committing our local ARPA funding to where it is needed most, I am proud to announce that our Indian Orchard neighborhood has seen over $2 million committed to the neighborhood in ARPA awards toward Main Street infrastructure improvements, small business development and a commitment to develop a neighborhood community center building.  I also want to thank Councilor Govan for partnering with my administration and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation in helping to reach out to our residents so that they can learn more about the potential energy and cost savings measures they might qualify for through Ener-G-Save and the Mass Save Community First Partnership.  Residents could be eligible for benefits such as no-cost air sealing improvements, 75% or more off approved insulation, up to $15,000 in heat pump rebates, 0% financing for energy efficiency upgrades, and no cost items like programmable thermostats.”
