Buckley Calls For State Funding Changes

September 23, 2021

HORNELL, NY – Mayor John Buckley is calling on state lawmakers to create an annual funding stream for cities and villages for water and sewer improvements similar to the CHIPS program for street repairs. Mayor Buckley says that changing from the current grant process to an annual allotment of funds would be more of a proactive approach and would help municipalities better maintain and improve aging water and sewer systems throughout the state.
