“Its a little more emotional for me because Northwest Florida is where I was raised, this is the part of the state that I represented in the legislature,” Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis said. “We’re just a small part of a very big state, but it’s nice to be remembered.”

Other communities receiving funds include: City of Blountstown, $9,933,954; City of Wewahitchka, $8,500,00; City of Bristol, $6,869,018; Town of Vernon, $1,674,622; City of Gretna, $750,000; and Town of Wausau, $737,652.
