Looking for ways to fund infrastructure?
Talk to us at the League of Minnesota Cities Conference
Meeting infrastructure needs – now and in the future – is a big concern for most small communities and their leaders.
How do you maintain and modernize roads, bridges, water lines, sewers and water or wastewater treatment plants? What can you do to make sure the infrastructure your residents depend on every day to safely go about their daily lives is sound, efficient and cost effective?
Do you have a strategic plan for growth and development? What are your priorities? How will you build consensus, and last, but far from least, where will you find the money to pay for your municipal projects?
Getting from pipedreams to new pipes
Over the last 50+ years, Moore Engineering has helped dozens of Minnesota and North Dakota cities and small towns answer these and other questions – and built thousands of municipal projects. We understand the challenges, from funding to permitting to implementation to maintenance.
We also have a thorough understanding of the complexities and specifics of government funding programs, because we’ve been working with them for so many years. In fact, I’ve been introduced at meetings in Minnesota as “the person who finds ways to finance projects.”
Bottom line is this: we know funding resources inside and out, how to get the most out of them, and where to look for every available dollar. And we know how to combine your vision with our expertise to get results for your community.
Moore bang for your buck
At Moore Engineering, we take a holistic approach to engineering. That means we do more than simply consider the project on the table, particularly when it comes to funding. Our process involves looking beyond the immediate project to consider other present and future needs with additional funding opportunities.
It’s an approach that has saved our clients hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Here’s one example: a city had a plan for updating a wastewater treatment plant. We looked at the city’s additional needs – an aged, deteriorating sanitary sewer – and proposed a more comprehensive project that significantly increased the value to the community without a significant rise in projected monthly cost for users.
To learn more about how even small cities with limited budgets can make big things happen, stop by and see me at the Moore Engineering Booth 511 at the LMC annual conference in St. Cloud on Thursday, June 19. I look forward to chatting with you.
