YORK- Reps. Stan Saylor (R-York) and Keith Gillespie (R-York) announced a $3.5 million grant for Springettsbury Township in York County. The grant will support the construction of a new police station and renovations at the administration building. The project will also incorporate a new training center with advanced IT capabilities for use by the township, first responders, and the public and a secure area for tax collections.
The funding is provided by Pennsylvania’s Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP). The purpose of Pennsylvania’s RACP funding is to support critical expansion projects, providing opportunities for additional employment training, job creation and community services throughout the Commonwealth.
“This funding is excellent news for the residents of Springettsbury Township and for the dedicated police force there,” Saylor said. “This project allows the police to move from a building that was built in the 1950s to one with state-of-the-art capabilities. All residents of the township will benefit from these improvements and increased safety.”
“This funding will go a long way in bringing this project to completion,” said Gillespie. “Having a new, updated police station and training facility will enhance the services provided by law enforcement, while also making their jobs easier and safer. I applaud RACP in recognizing the importance of this project and allocating this needed funding.”
