Flood Mitigation at the Y and Frederick City

The city received $534,977 in Community Project Funding money Thursday for its Motter Avenue Area Community Flood Mitigation Project, designed to limit flooding by installing new pipes and lines to help drain more stormwater from the area during heavy rains.

U.S. Rep. David Trone presented the money to Frederick Mayor Michael O’Connor on Thursday afternoon at the YMCA on North Market Street.
