13 NY counties, cities and towns to receive $1.7 million for storm damage
ALBANY, N.Y. - State funding will be available to 13 New York counties, cities and towns, for damage sustained from Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee.
More than $1.7 million in funding for emergency relief will help repair local roads and bridges.
This funding means communities will only have to pay 5% of the overall costs to rebuild transportation infrastructure.
In the Capital Region, the Town of New Scotland and Greene, Rensselaer and Schenectady Counties will receive part of the funding. Another nine counties and towns will receive funding for storm repair including Essex and Otsego counties and the City of Utica.
