FALLSBURG – The Town of Fallsburg has approved a number of major infrastructure projects that are expected to take years to complete and cost as much as $100-million to $120 million.

Major work is expected to correct water draining and flooding issues on Laurel Avenue next to the Rivoli Theater, according to Deputy Town Supervisor Dr. Sean Wall-Carty.

“Hopefully when we get it all squared away, hopefully it will not have the flooding that goes on consistently; that’s our main goal,” he said. The town board has also approved bids to replace the town’s water towers and that would increase the town’s water storage capacity by 60 percent.”

The town is looking at state and federal grants to pay for much of the work.
