Media Advisory: Orange County Mayors Unite to Celebrate Passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act

Friday, November 12, 2021

City of Irvine Mayor Farrah N. Khan, along with OC Mayors, unite to celebrate the passing of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and share the significant community impacts in Orange County Cities. Among the Mayors sharing how these funds will benefit their city are Buena Park Mayor Connor Traut, Laguna Niguel Mayor Fred Minagar, and Santa Ana Mayor Vicente Sarmiento.

“After more than a year of the devastating effects of COVID-19, it is time to rebuild our community, City, and County,” said Mayor Farrah N. Khan. “I intend on making Irvine more resilient than ever by focusing on the repair and rebuild of our roads and bridges with a focus on climate change mitigation – specifically our City goal of carbon neutrality by 2030 – and helping connect every resident to reliable high-speed internet.”

The historic legislation will deliver for local governments across the country to repair roads and bridges, improve transportation options, build a network of EV chargers to accelerate the adoption of EVs, help connect every American to reliable high-speed internet, eliminate the nation’s lead service lines and pipes for clean drinking water, protect against extreme weather events and cyber-attacks and improve our nation’s airports.
