According to reports coming out of Atlanta last week, Chattooga County will be receiving over $30,000 in federal stimulus funds after Governor Sonny Perdue submitted the required "1511" certification.

Governor Perdue submitted the certification as part of a June 2 letter to US DOT Secretary Ray LaHood. In the letter, the Governor informed Secretary LaHood that more projects will be certified as the Georgia DOT and Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) amend their TIPs to include additional projects.
