Dock Gabbert, Mayor
On or after November 8, 2019, the Town of Derma will submit a request to the Mississippi Development Authority for the release of Community Development Block Grant funds under Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended, to undertake the following project:
Project Title: Water Improvements
Purpose: The proposed project consists of replacing failed well pumps, construction of chemical buildings and replacing electrical and control systems at Well #1 and Well #2 of three water wells.
Location: Mathis Street, Town of Derma
Estimated Cost: $305,700.00
The activities proposed comprise a project for which a Finding of No Significant Impact on the environment was published on October 23, 2019. An Environmental Review Record (ERR) that documents the environmental determinations for this project is on file at the Town of Derma, Town Hall, 120 South Main Street, Derma, Mississippi, and may be examined or copied weekdays 8 A.M. to 5 P.M.
The Town of Derma has determined that the project will have no significant impact on the human environment. Therefore, an Environmental Impact Statement under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) is not required. Additional project information is contained in the Environmental Review Record (ERR) on file at the Town of Derma, Town Hall, 120 South Main Street, Derma, Mississippi, and may be examined or copied weekdays 8 A.M. to 5 P.M., after November 8, 2019.
Any individual, group, or agency may submit written comments on the ERR to the Town of Derma. All comments received by November 7, 2019, will be considered by the Town of Derma prior to submission of a request for release of funds.
The Town of Derma certifies to Mississippi Development Authority that Dock Gabbert in his capacity as Mayor consents to accept the jurisdiction of the Federal Courts if an action is brought to enforce responsibilities in relation to the environmental review process and that these responsibilities have been satisfied. The Mississippi Development Authority’s approval of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA and related laws and authorities and allows the Town of Derma to use HUD program funds.
The Mississippi Development Authority will accept objections to its release of funds and the Town of Derma's certification for a period of fifteen days following the anticipated submission date or its actual receipt of the request (whichever is later) only if they are on one of the following bases: (a) the certification was not executed by the Certifying Officer of the Town of Derma; (b) the Town of Derma has omitted a step or failed to make a decision or finding required by HUD regulations at 24 CFR part 58; (c) the grant recipient or other participants in the development process have committed funds, incurred costs or undertaken activities not authorized by 24 CFR Part 58 before approval of a release of funds by Mississippi Development Authority; or (d) another Federal agency acting pursuant to 40 CFR Part 1504 has submitted a written finding that the project is unsatisfactory from the standpoint of environmental quality. Objections must be prepared and submitted in accordance with the required procedures (24 CFR Part 58, Sec. 58.76) and shall be addressed to Attention: Antoine Dixon, Mississippi Development Authority, Community Services Division, Post Office Box 849, Jackson, Mississippi, 39205-0849. Potential objectors should contact the Mississippi Development Authority to verify the actual last day of the objection period. Dock Gabbert, Mayor 23
