JUNE 1 NEWS CONFERENCE ON MUNICIPAL CLEAN-UP PROGRAM

Anti-Littering Campaigns Added to Building Demolitions

May 19, 2009

[LIBERTY] – Grant recipients for the Sullivan Renaissance Municipal Clean-Up Program will be announced on Monday, June 1 at 10:30 a.m. at the Liberty Village Hall on North Main Street in Liberty.  This site is one of two that will receive funding to install observation cameras to control illegal dumping.  This year several anti-littering campaigns will be funded along with building demolitions and roadside cleanups.

The program provides matching grants to assist municipalities.  Over the last three years the Municipal Clean-Up Program has improved over three dozen sites by removing unsightly buildings and roadside dumps.  Applications are still being accepted on a rolling deadline. 

A news release and photos of the projects will be distributed on June 1.  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) as well as Waste Management of Beach Lake, PA and other area carting and recycling businesses.

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. 

Sullivan Renaissance 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.
