THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, July 10, 2020 Page 3 Malden to receive $910,155 in Chapter 90 road repair funds B OSTON – Malden’s State House delegation supported a statewide bond authorization that will provide the city with $910,155 to help fund local transportation infrastructure upgrades in Fiscal Year 2021. House Bill 4803, An Act fi nancing improvements to municipal roads and bridges, authorizes $200 million in spending under the state’s Chapter 90 program. The bill was enacted by the House of Representatives on June 30 and by the Senate on July 2. On July 2, Governor Charlie Baker signed the bill into law. “Leaders at the state and local level continue to work together to ensure that our public infrastructure and transportation network are safe, reliable and useful,” said Senator Jason Lewis. “Even in the face of a global pandemic and an economic recession, I believe that investment in our infrastructure must remain a top priority to ensure the safety and prosperity of our communities and our region.” “I am confi dent that the City of Malden will utilize the funding from this bond for much-needed infrastructure and transportation needs,” said Representative Paul Donato. “The delegation continues to fi ght for Malden residents as we deal with very demanding times.” “Even as cities and towns respond to the unprecedented challenges of COVID-19, ongoing infrastructure work in our communities must continue,” said Representative Kate Lipper-Garabedian. “I am glad to join my colleagues in the House and Senate to authorize funding to Malden for ongoing municipal capital improvement projects.” “I was glad to join my colleagues in the legislature to pass this necessary bill to fund repairs to municipal and regional roads and bridges across the Commonwealth through the Chapter 90 program,” said Representative Steven Ultrino. “It is necessary to continue to invest in transportation and capital improvement projects to ensure that our local and statewide infrastructure is safe and accessible.” Established by the Legislature in 1973, the Chapter 90 program provides funding to municipalities on an annual basis to assist with critical transportation infrastructure projects, including road and bridge repairs. The funding is allocated using a formula that is based on the weighted average of a community’s population, employment and total road miles. Chapter 90 funding can be used for a variety of purposes, including road resurfacing, sidewalks, street lighting, traffi c control measures and roadside drainage. Municipalities can also use the money for the purchase, replacement and long-term lease of road building machinery, equipment and tools. COVID-19 jail cases remain at zero for fifth straight week M iddlesex County Sheriff Peter Koutoujian recently announced that for the fi fth straight week, the number of incarcerated individuals testing positive for COVID-19 at the Middlesex Jail & House of Correction stands at zero. “Over the past four months, our staff has done an incredible job confronting this unprecedented public health challenge,” said Koutoujian. “While we have reached an important milestone in our efforts to address COVID-19, we remain vigilant. The health and safety of our incarcerated population, our staff , and our wider community remain our chief priority.” During the last fi ve weeks, 14 COVID-19 tests were administered, all of which came back negative. Of those 14 tests, 10 were conducted as precautionary measures, including seven of which were for individuals either reentering the community or being transferred to other jurisdictions. Four individuals entering the facility from the community were immediately isolated and tested based on medical protocols.
