Mayor Hicks-Hudson Goes to Washington for US EPA Water Infrastructure Funding Forum

Mayor Paula Hicks-Hudson accepted an invitation from the US EPA and is traveling today to Washington, D.C. to attend its “Drinking Water and Wastewater Infrastructure for Communities in Need” forum on Tuesday, July 19, 2016. The forum expressly pertains to coordinating funding and financing to support water infrastructure needs.

“Truly your voice for communities that are employing innovations to address water infrastructure challenges would be a great asset to the convening,” wrote M. Arnita Hannon, US EPA Intergovernmental Liaison, inviting the Mayor to attend the July 19 event.

Mayor Hicks-Hudson will also participate in a luncheon session with a circle of mayors hosted by US EPA Assistant Administrator for Water, Joel Beauvais. The US EPA Office of Congressional and Intergovernmental Relations has made travel arrangements for Mayor Hicks-Hudson to be its guest. No City funds will be used for the trip.
