Ashford residents will be seeing some improvements in their city.
Today, Representative Paul Lee joined Ashford Mayor Jonathan Grecu and other city officials to present a check of more than $289,000.
The grant will be used for sewer improvements at the Ashford housing authority.
"I really didn't think that I would get it and I was sweating it out and on the last day of, this is crazy, but on the last day of my first year is when I got the call that we received the grants so for me this is a big deal,” Ashford Mayor Jonathan Grecu.
The total estimated cost of the project is around $322,000.
