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."

Residents are encouraged to contact the Yorktown Highway Department to report local potholes at 914-962-5781 or email aanderson@yorktownny.org.

Great! They can fill like ONE whole pothole with that!
The condition of the roads around Yorktown (and NY in general) is just absolutely terrible. Some of these roads haven't been paved in literally 20 years.

Oh, and Yorktown likes to ignore the lesser-used roads. Croton Dam Road, the one that leads to that little red bridge over the reservoir... They pretend that road doesn't even exist!! And yet it's the main way those of us in Southern Yorktown get to downtown!

Well, we can really use it on Wren Place...hasn't been touched in about 10 years. Majors cracks and holes and was dug up 4 years ago for sewers and basically patched. Supposedly on the list...hopefully it gets done.

Thank you Sen Ball...Paganelli seems off to a decent start as Highway Super...Murphy...I'm thinking he has his sights set on higher office by jumping on a press release, not certain of what he has really delivered here. Still waiting for his Par 3 golf on Rt 6, which is seemingly Par 86 as Taps is played in the background

hmmm..... let's see if they use the money in the right places....
