Harrisburg – April 30, 2019 – Sen. Katie Muth (D-Berks, Chester, Montgomery) announced that the Limerick Fire Department has been approved for grant funding that will help the department’s consolidation efforts.

The department will receive $84,520 to assist with legal fees and other costs associated with renaming and rebranding.

“Congratulations to the Limerick Fire Department on the approval of this funding,” said Muth. “Consolidation will help the department improve operations, enhance efficiency, and better serve the community.”

The approved funding comes from the Department of Community and Economic Development’s (DCED) Municipal Assistance Program. The program provides state investments to local efforts that aim to revitalize communities.
