Originally published in Rockland County Times

Senator James Skoufis (D-Hudson Valley) recently presented Mayor Michael Kohut with a grant of $250,000 to repair and rehabilitate Hudson Avenue in the Village of Haverstraw. Senator Skoufis secured this funding during the state’s budget negotiations.

Senator Skoufis said, “Hudson Avenue and others like it are highly-traveled roads close to the elementary school, community center, and Route 9W; it’s imperative that the conditions are safe for travel. Villages and towns in the Hudson Valley are constantly under budget restraints, which is why I have always fought to bring back our fair share of funding for much-needed infrastructure upgrades. I was delighted to secure this grant for Haverstraw because it’s essential that our roads are safe to travel for everyone in the community.”
