Orange, Sullivan awarded state funds to develop weather resiliency plans

ALBANY – Orange and Sullivan counties have been awarded state funding – a portion of a total $1 million set aside for five counties – to help develop resiliency plans to better prepare for, and efficiently recover from severe weather events.

“We must build our communities and infrastructure to withstand powerful storms,” said Orange County Executive Steven Neuhaus. “This funding is an important part of keeping our communities ready to deal with these increasingly unpredictable weather events.”

Sullivan County Legislature Chairman Luis Alvarez said, “Preparing our natural resources and infrastructure to withstand and recover from severe weather is essential to our state’s economy. These targeted state funds have proven to be a key strategy for helping communities protect their homes and infrastructure against storm damage.”

The other counties sharing the funding are Albany, Genesee, and Tompkins.
