Received some good news from the United States Congress about our sidewalk to schools initiative. The Congress has authorized additional funds for the DOT's TIGER program --helping local governments build new sidewalks near schools.
The town will apply for the grants. The safety of our children MUST be a very high priority. This funding, if approved for the town, will enable Greenburgh to build more sidewalks around town quicker and will supplement funding in the 2016 capital budget for sidewalks.

Does the budget that was approved last week include funds for sidewalks to schools? Thanks. PAUL FEINER
