Delhi, NY...State Senator Jen Metzger (SD-42) yesterday visited the Village of Delhi to announce $100,000 in State and Municipal Facilities Capital (SAM) grant funding awarded by her office for several Village projects. The grant will fund a new snow plow vehicle and a replacement heating system for the Department of Public Works, as well as help fund pipe replacements at the Village’s water plant well house. Joining Senator Metzger for the announcement was Village of Delhi Mayor Richard Maxey.
“Local governments operate on tight budgets, and it can be challenging to come up with the resources for needed equipment and infrastructure improvements, especially in challenging economic times like these," said Senator Jen Metzger. “This grant will enable the Village of Delhi to make necessary investments in the Highway Department and water services without overburdening local taxpayers."
Village of Delhi Mayor Richard Maxey said, “I want to thank Senator Jen Metzger for this much-needed $100,000 grant to replace one of Delhi’s snow plows, and also defray the costs of heating the DPW building and water pipe replacement at our well house. This grant helps all village residents in keeping our taxes reduced as this money is being applied to needed repairs that strengthen our infrastructure and make us more resilient in the winter months.”
Jen Metzger represents the 42nd Senate District, which includes all of Sullivan County and parts of Delaware, Orange, and Ulster Counties. Senator Metzger serves as Chair of the Agriculture Committee and sits on the Environmental Conservation, Education, Health, Energy and Telecommunications, Local Government, Women’s Issues, Domestic Animal Welfare, and Legislative Commission on Rural Resources Committees.
