Springfield residents waiting to get sewer improvements through a state grant will have to wait longer for help.
The state Department of Community Affairs did not approve the city’s application for a community development block grant that would have funded extension of sewer lines to homes near South Railroad Avenue. 
The city was seeking a grant of $458,209, with a local match of $25,000 to cover the tap-in fees. The project would have served about 18 or 19 houses, City Manager Brett Bennett said.
