The post-COVID plan will fund projects that are proposed on the local and regional level.

Port Jervis Mayor Kelly Decker has his sights on one particular project he would like to see move forward.

“To focus on Riverside Park. I am working with the outdoor club as well as private investors in creating that into a destination location for people with different types of recreational activities,” he said.
