NEWBURGH – Senator James Skoufis (D, Cornwall) has secured a commitment from Central Hudson to clean up and remove graffiti from utility boxes in the City of Newburgh.
Over the summer, Skoufis’ team traveled throughout the city identifying utility boxes, poles, and other locations with graffiti or tags on them. He then sent a list of each identified location to Central Hudson and asked that they commit to cleaning the sites up to which they committed.
They include utility boxes at Unico Park, Second Street, South Water Street, Renwick Street, and Cerone Place.
“The beautification of our communities uplifts both residents and small business owners because when our streets are clean and our environment is healthy, we all win,” said Skoufis. “I thank Central Hudson for agreeing to this commitment and I look forward to working to continue implementing these types of initiatives in our communities.”
