County Executives Urge Infrastructure Aid

Rockland County Executive Ed Day has joined Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino and Putnam County Executive Ellen Odell in asking the state for aid to go towards infrastructure repairs. New York received about $5 billion dollars from legal settlements in this year’s budget and much of the recent negotiations surrounded what to do with the large sum of money. All three County officials stated that the roads in the Lower Hudson Valley are in desperate need of repair after the rough winter and Governor Andrew Cuomo misused the money by not setting some aside for local roadways. State officials agreed to spend $1.5 billion for upstate economic development, and $1.3 billion will go to the Thruway Authority to keep tolls down for drivers. Infrastructure and increased $10 million statewide to assist in repairing state owned roads and the County Executives stated that it might not be enough for the amount of damage that needs fixing.
