(Funds for Salton Sea project)…..The funds were including in the Omnibus Bill.
The recent House passed Bill includes $300,000 for the project. The money will go to the Army Corps of Engineers to conduct a Salton Sea Research Project. The Bill also includes funding for Senior’s Nutrition programs. That means the local Area Agency on Agency programs may now be fully funded. The Triple A had gone to the County Board of Supervisors for funding to continue the local Seniors Nutrition programs. They said if they did not receive the funding, the Senior Meals program would have to be cut. The Supervisors approved enough money to temporarily continue the meals program.
