"On behalf of the Authority and citizens of McLoud, I would like to express our appreciation to the Board and its staff for its assistance in providing low interest rate financing to make various improvements to our sewer system. The efforts of all those involved are well appreciated and we look forward to working with the Board and others in successfully completing this much needed project. Thank you."
