Dec. 13, 2012 @ 09:11 AM

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Some $12.5 million in small cities block grants are headed to localities around West Virginia to fund 17 projects.

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin said Wednesday more than $66 million in other public funds will be leveraged to complete the projects. He said the projects will serve about 12,200 residents, a majority of whom are low- and moderate-income.

Some of the projects that will benefit include $1.3 million to extend water service in a section of Boone County, $1.3 million for sewer improvements in the Taylor County town of Flemington, $1 million to provide water service to 240 households in Lincoln County and $1.1 million to provide water service to 94 households in Wetzel County.
