Attention Bridge City Citizens


The City of Bridge City Has received

 another CDBG Grant for replacing

sewer service lines from property line

to house.  If anyone has a need for

 some help or knows anyone that does,

 please call City Hall at 409.735.6801

 and ask for Mike Lund. 


We will be doing surveys until we get about

200 homes that are qualified. 

This grant is income based and you do have

 to live  inside the city limits.  Even if

you're not sure you qualify,  please call.

This helps both the citizens and the city.
