Andover, Bolivar, Cuba, and Caneadea will see major benefits to water and wastewater systems
From the Allegany County Democrats,
Belmont, NY…. Gov. Kathy Hochul has announced $5,428,494 in grant funding for water and wastewater systems improvements under New York’s Clean Water, Clean Air, and Green Jobs Environmental Bond Act of 2022, and the state’s Water Infrastructure Improvement and Intermunicipal Grant Programs.
The Village of Andover will receive $1.35 million for its Water System Improvement Project, the Village of Bolivar will receive $1.45 million for upgrades to its Wastewater Treatment Plant, the Village of Cuba will receive $2.19 million for its Sanitary Sewer System Evaluation, and the Town of Caneadea will receive $430,000 to support improvements to its Wastewater Treatment Plant disinfection system.
In additional news…. Gov. Hochul announced the New York Power Authority Board of Trustees approved a 580-kilowatt ReCharge NY power allocation to Arvos Ljungstrom in Wellsville. ReCharge NY is a signature economic development initiative of the State. Through it, qualifying businesses and nonprofits can potentially lower their energy costs by using specially allocated NYPA power which is set aside by the state government and the NYPA board for economic support.
This allocation is expected to spur $12.5 million in private capital investments and support the retention of nearly 300 local jobs. The firm will construct additional buildings to manufacture coating systems, upgrade its current factory, and transform its manufacturing facility to produce secondary steel used in offshore wind projects.
Empire State Development (ESD) is also providing up to $2.5 million in Excelsior Jobs Program tax credits to Arvos Ljungstrom, in exchange for the company’s commitment to create 47 new jobs in Wellsville.
The Allegany County Democratic Committee promotes and supports effective government at the federal, state and local levels to improve the quality of life for Allegany County residents.
