YORKTOWN, N.Y. -- Yorktown is getting more than any other Westchester County municipality for pothole repairs.
Yorktown received $43,995 out of the total $1,207,988.17 allocated to Westchester County for pothole repair from the state, said Yorktown Councilman Terrance Murphy and the town's Highway Superintendent Dave Paganelli, in a press release.
"It comes down to ensuring the safety of our residents," said Murphy in the release. "After the winter we just went through the potholes we continue to dodge were inevitable. Thankfully we were able to partner with the state to secure nearly $44,000 in additional funds to repair our roadways without putting a dent in our budget."
Murphy and Paganelli worked with State Sen. Greg Ball "who delivered more than $2 million to the counties within his district," according to the release.
"This proves partnerships within government exist," said Paganelli. "Councilman Murphy and I were able to work together, communicate our needs to the state and ultimately deliver for the folks of Yorktown. This is government at its best."
Westchester County received $1.2 million, Putnam County received $213,597.57 and Dutchess County received $686,392.04, according to the release.
"As the winter progressed, local governments struggled to stay on top of the weather while staying within their budgets," said Ball. "I was happy to work with Councilman Murphy and Highway Superintendent Paganelli to deliver this much needed funding to help Yorktown repair our roads and fix the potholes that this winter has left behind."
