The following message was received from Senator Phil Boyle:
Knowing the damage the harsh winter has had on our roads, I am proud to inform you that this year’s State Budget includes $40 million for pothole repair. This funding will help get our driving routines back to normal and that is why I was proud to fight for its inclusion into the budget.
Local village, town and county crews have been working around the clock to fill potholes, but they deserve help from Albany. As such, I am pleased to announce that the following funds will be allocated for local municipalities to improve the roads that Long Islanders rely on. The breakdown of the funds are below:
Town of Babylon: $142,047
Town of Islip: $252,853
Village of Babylon: $24,322
Village of Brightwaters: $12,231
Village of Lindenhurst: $52,556
Additionally, the Consolidated Local Street and Highway Improvement Program (CHIPS) will provide Suffolk County with $243,198 in funding for street repairs.
If you know of a pothole and would like to report it, please visit my website: boyle.nysenate.gov and click on the pothole button on the left hand side. If you have any additional questions about a pothole needing repair or the state’s budget please do not hesitate to call my district office at (631) 665-2311.
