Senator John J. Bonacic announces that the Village of Liberty has been awarded $50,000 in funding from the Municipal Facilities Program.
The grant will provide for necessary upgrades to assist Village officials in the event of a public emergency, including a backup generator for Village Hall, emergency supplies, and mobile light towers at critical Village intersections in the event of a power outage.
“The Village of Liberty is grateful for Senator Bonacic’s support for our efforts to update Village Hall and make it a true emergency response center for our community,” said Mayor Daniel Ratner. “Twice in very recent history, Village Hall became a center of assistance for many residents in the Village of Liberty and even beyond, and with the funding the Senator is bringing to our community, we can make much-needed improvements that will allow us to be better equipped and prepared to come to the aid of our residents and keep them safe and healthy during times of crisis.”
“I am pleased to help the Village of Liberty obtain this grant to make these important improvements to their Village Hall, and enable village officials to be as prepared as they can be in the event of an emergency,” said Senator Bonacic.
