Buckley: Cities Need More AIM Funding

March 17, 2022

HORNELL, NY – Mayor John Buckley is urging Governor Hochul to increase AIM funding for cities and villages in this year’s state budget. Both the NYS Assembly and Senate have included AIM increases in their one house budgets which will have to be reconciled with the Governor’s budget this month.

Mayor Buckley says AIM funding is vital for cities such as Hornell and helps fund everything from water and sewer to police and fire protection. AIM Funding has been stagnant for 13 years and counting.
