JOLIET, Ill. — As one of the legislators serving the City of Joliet, Assistant Majority Leader Natalie Manley, D-Joliet, procured hundreds of thousands of dollars from the capital projects bill to improve aspects of the Joliet’s infrastructure to increase safety and efficiency. In a letter to Manley, D-Joliet, Joliet Mayor Bob O’Dekirk expressed his thanks for helping to provide funds for important projects in the city.
“One of my top priorities as your state representative is to advocate for the vital funding our city needs,” Manley said. “The residents of Joliet deserve a city with improved infrastructure that works as hard as they do.”
Manley has supported the City of Joliet by providing capital projects funding for the city since 2019 for the Eastside Water Treatment Facility Plant Outfall project and the Mound Road Overlay project. Manley is currently negotiating to bring additional funding to Will County in the 2023 capital project bill.
“As always, I am fiercely committed to representing the interests of my district, especially as we in the House of Representatives negotiate the details of the capital projects bill,” said Manley. “I look forward to working with all the mayors and seeing all the municipalities in the 98th district grow and improve.”
