SENATOR GREG BALL ANNOUNCES $40 MILLION FOR POTHOLE REPAIRS, ASKS COMMUNITY TO REPORT POTHOLES ONLINE

 

    Albany, N.Y. – 03/29/2014 – Senator Greg Ball (R, C, I – Patterson) has announced that the New York State 2014 – 2015 budget agreement includes $40 million in funding to help fix potholes.

    Senator Greg Ball is now enlisting the community’s assistance to identify dangerous potholes in need of repair. Residents that know of potholes, are asked to report them on Senator Ball’s website.

    “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,” said Senator Greg Ball. “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.”

    If you know of a pothole, you can report it by visiting Senator Ball’s website at:nysenate.gov/webform/report-pothole.

    The additional $40 million in funding will be added to the Consolidated Local Street and Highway Improvement Program (CHIPS).
