NYS LEGISLATURE TO HOLD HEARING ON STATE BUDGET FRIDAY AT GREENBURGH TOWN HALL
Release Date: January 31, 2018

The Westchester delegation to the NYS Legislature will be holding a hearing on the NYS budget on Friday at Greenburgh Town Hall. I will be testifying around noon and plan to focus my attention on the need for the state to help local governments with road repaving. Roads around the state have many potholes and local governments need more help to address infrastructure needs. In Greenburgh there are state, county, town and village roads. Each government entity is only responsible for the roads within their jurisdiction.  Many of the NYS owned roads located in Greenburgh have been neglected and are in need of repaving.  We will also be looking for the state to repave neglected roads that are state owned.

 

I  will be pushing for state funding for more sidewalks on state roads (W Hartsdale Ave, Knollwood, Hillside, Central Ave, Dobbs Ferry Road as an example). Another goal: financial help from NYS  for traffic safety initiatives on Jackson Ave –leading to Ridge Hill and the Austin Ave development. The section of Jackson Ave that comes under the jurisdiction of Greenburgh is used by people from all over the county –people who shop at Yonkers Ridge Hill development, Costco, Home Depot or Stew Leonard’s. We have been advised that safety improvements could cost up to $7 million dollars.

 

Finally, the Ardsley Secor Ambulance Corp is looking for financial help to purchase a new ambulance (ambulance cost needs are about $250,000). The Ambulance Corp is staffed with dedicated volunteers who have saved many lives over the years.

 

If you would like to testify at this hearing – please RSVP to the Assembly (contact info below).
