Sheffield grants money from DCEO, part of the complete renovation of the village

“We will have a brand-new main street. sidewalks, lighting, road service,” she said. “We have new board members and we’re excited about the future of Sheffield.” The village recently utilized an EPA low-interest loan of around $500,000 to replace every flow meter in town and repaint the water tower. It is using about $750,000 in local TIF money for a complete downtown overhaul that includes ADA-compliant sidewalks, but retains the historical nature of the village. Tampico Mayor Kristine Hill said that village also will be utilizing its $500,00 in DCEP infrastrcure money for sewer work.

For Sheffield, according to Mayor Mayor Lanham, appointed in 2019 but elected on Tuesday, the money, which doesn’t carry with it the normal local-matching funding share, is a lifeline to a small but vibrant community. “That will takessome of the burden off the existing system,” she told the Star Courier.

“It’s great for these little communities,” she said. “Other than the grant it’s hard to come up with that kind of money. We’re looking forward to receiving it and we will use all of that money.” In Sheffield, that means fixing its aging sewer plant. Sheffield will receive around $550,000 to shore up the plant’s lagoon and create a backup lagoon for overflow. The vilalges of Tampico, Wyanett, Buda and Albion will all receive similar amounts.

“Coming out of a pandemic, a lot of people have lost their jobs, we can’t turn to them and raise the utility costs to try and cover this at this time,” Hill said. “Without this help, we couldn’t move forward and help our community.”  Tampico received the maximum grant amount of $550,000 which will go toward the rehabilitation of its sanitary sewer system, as well as protective lining for storm sewers and manholes.  According to Hill, the issue has been a burden on residents of Tampico, a village of less than 800 residents which Hill said does not have surplus tax revenue to address the problem. The sewer back up, she said, could potentially cause more damage to homes if the problem continues to go unresolved.

“Our system is quite old to begin with, but then during the flooding of 2019, the groundwater infiltrated our storm source and overloaded our system which caused us to have emergency pumps running and backing up into people’s homes,” Hill said in a phone interview. “It was just quite a mess for many of our residents.”  Village of Tampico Mayor Kristine Hill, a grantee of the program, said her community is facing major issues with its infrastructure, specifically its storm sewer system.
