MUNICIPAL CLEAN-UP PROGRAM
Record Number of Projects throughout Sullivan County
April 30, 2008
[LIBERTY] – Awards for the Sullivan Renaissance Municipal Clean-Up Program will be announced on Monday, May 12 at 10:30 a.m. at 52 Pleasant Street in Livingston Manor. This site is one of eight buildings to be removed as part of the Town of Rockland’s Flood Mitigation Program, and is the subject of a planned controlled burn by the Livingston Manor Fire Department.
The program provides matching grants to assist municipalities with the clean-up of roadside sites and the removal of derelict, unsightly and unsafe structures. Last year the Municipal Clean-Up Program removed nine unsightly buildings and cleaned up two roadsides. This year the number of projects will more than double.
A news release and photos of all the clean-up sites will be distributed on May 12. Among those present at this press event will be: representatives of municipalities receiving grants; officials from the Sullivan County Legislature and DPW; executives from the collaborating businesses; members of Sullivan Renaissance steering committee and staff.
In addition to Sullivan Renaissance, this collaborative effort includes: the Sullivan County Legislature and Division of Public Works (DPW); Taylor Recycling Facility LLC of Montgomery, NY; Waste Management of Beach Lake, PA; Weinert Recycling of Ferndale, NY; Thompson Sanitation of Rock Hill, NY; and Sullivan First Refuse and Recycling of Fallsburg, NY.
Municipalities may use in-kind contributions, private and/or foundation funds, and other sources of revenue for their match. SullivanCounty is helping with disposal of the solid waste in the county landfill on a space available basis.
is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation. Additional funding has been secured by NYS Senator John J. Bonacic and Assemblywoman Aileen M. Gunther.
