PORT JERVIS – Friday is the deadline for communities to submit requests to the state under the Consolidated Funding Application process and the City of Port Jervis is requesting funding for two proposals.
Mayor Kelly Decker said one is seeking $50,000 for community infrastructure planning.
“This is to ultimately track the city’s asset and sanitary and stormwater lines, water meters, heads, Main Street, lights, trees, communications, infrastructure and city-owned property,” the mayor said. “With that there is a five percent match depending on what we are awarded. The other is to get another big chunk out of our downtown on Pike Street for sidewalks.”
The maximum for that would be $300,000 with the city providing in-kind services of tearing up old concrete.
The state will review all applications and announce winners later this year.
