We can see that Major Jonathan Weinzapfel efforts to clean contaminated sites with in city limits have borne results. Evansville will be able to share in up to $2.4 million in federal and state funding to clean up additional brownfields. Because of the city's previous efforts to remediate brownfields, Evansville will receive first priority over other communities when loans are extended, state officials said. The results will be an increase in the tax base due to new constructions on these sites. We thank the Major for all his efforts.
