Grants available—try and get them

Some 2,000 municipalities are eligible for the funding, and the successful filing does not guarantee funding. If successful, the grant would provide 75%, $1,050,000, of the $1.4 million project.

In a related move, after massaging its language to accommodate emergency management bureaucracy, the town board approved an updated local emergency/hazard mitigation plan, which had to be in place for grant eligibility.

In an unrelated grant action, the board authorized an application for a $50,000 state grant through state Sen. John Bonacic, to plan and develop a community park on town-owned property on River Road in Barryville.
