Senator Klein & Town of Pelham Supervisor Pete DiPaola celebrate the completion of security and energy efficiency upgrades to Pelham Town House
Security cameras, energy efficient generator, lighting and courtroom upgrades made possible through state funding secured by Senator Klein
Pelham, NY – Senator Jeff Klein and Town of Pelham Supervisor Pete DiPaola celebrated the completion of security and energy efficiency upgrades to Pelham Town House. As a result of state funding secured by Senator Klein, the Town House recently received a new natural gas fueled generator, new security cameras and surveillance room, new courtroom lighting and a reconstructed judges bench.
Senator Klein toured the Town House on Wednesday to see the improvements firsthand. The installation of the generator in December 2017 represented the completion of a $195,000 grant secured by Senator Klein. Besides increased security in and surrounding the Town House, the building is now better prepared to act as a shelter in the event of an emergency.
“It’s always exciting to see a public project come to fruition, especially one that enhances safety and sustainability. The nearly $200,000 grant enabled the Town House to install new security cameras and a fuel efficient generator, among other things. I look forward to continuing to find ways to improve the quality of life for the people of Pelham,” said Senator Klein.
“We are grateful for all the help that Senator Klein has given to our Town of Pelham residents over the years that he has represented us in Albany. He has managed to secure state grants that bring back tax money to our community. These recent improvements make our courtroom safer for everyone who attends. Our emergency shelter is now better equipped and prepared for any natural or man-made emergency. We are grateful for his continued help,” said Town of Pelham Supervisor DiPaola.
