The town of Stony Point is earning $500,000 for leasing an unused power plant to Tappan Zee Constructors, for use as a staging area where the company will be constructing parts of the bridge. According to Stony Point Town Supervisor, Geoff Finn, the town will be receiving $100,000 a year for the next four years, which he stated is not a big amount but, it will benefit tax payers. The owner of the plant, NRG, is leasing the site to Tappan Zee Constructors, but the town is included in the lease because police, fire, ambulance, and snowplowing services will be provided. Finn also stated that the construction will have a minimal effect on residents, parts will be delivered by trucks and barges. Carla Julian, spokeswoman for Tappan Zee Constructors, stated that the company will keep the town updated on traffic caused by trucks and other parts of the construction process. They will also repair any damage done to the location, on Elm Street.
