CORTLANDT, N.Y. -- State Sen. Greg Ball announced $40 million for pothole repairs that will be included in the 2014-15 state budget.
The $40 million in funding will be added to the Consolidated Local Street and Highway Improvement Program (CHIPS).
“This brutal winter has taken a toll on our roads. As the winter progressed, local governments struggled to stay on top of the weather while staying within their budgets. I was happy to work with my colleagues to deliver this much needed funding to help our local governments repair our roads and fix the potholes that this winter has left behind,” Ball said in a statement. “I am now enlisting the support of the community to help us identity the areas that are in dire need of attention. I have created a form on my website where residents can report potholes, so I can work with our local governments to expedite the process and get our roads back in good condition.”
Ball represents District 40, which includes Cortlandt, Peekskill, Mount Kisco, New Castle, Lewisboro, Pound Ridge, North Salem, Somers and Yorktown in Westchester and three towns in Putnam County.
