Astorino proposes $268 million capital budget


WHITE PLAINS – Westchester County Executive Robert Astorino unveiled a $268 million capital budget for 2018 that includes large investments in county parks, roads, bridges, sewer infrastructure and affordable housing.
“The capital budget reflects our continued commitment to economic growth and public infrastructure,” said the county executive on Tuesday. “It is designed to preserve our quality of life in Westchester and enhance vital county assets for our residents while taking advantages of historically low interest rates, which saves millions on borrowing costs.”
The capital plan includes $59.8 million for park improvements at Croton Point, Lasdon Park, Tibbetts Brook Park, Willson’s Woods, Mountain Lakes and Dunwoodle Golf Course, as well as other county parks. Another $36.6 million for sewer and water districts includes upgrades at the Port Chester, Mamaroneck and Yonkers water resource recovery facilities, and $7 million for the refuse district.
Funds will also be applied for extensive renovations and rehabilitation projects that will take place on the Bronx River Parkway, Quaker Bridge Road over the Croton River in Cortlandt, and Mamaroneck Avenue, as well as other roads and bridges in the county.
