The EPA issued an $800,000 grant to expand the City of Weirton Brownfields Program, and it could bring jobs to the area.
Weirton will start to set a plan for what they want to do with the current $800,000, starting with cleaning up the Brownfields, and hope this is just the first step when it comes to the revitalization.
County officials said if you know of any contaminated properties in the area that could be developed, reach out to the City Manager’s Office.
