News & Town Board Reports (gblist)

Posted on: February 3, 2022



I am pleased to present to the Town Board my 2022 capital budget.  The budget recommends funding of $19,208,500 to address important capital projects throughout the Town this year. 


The largest focus of the Department of Public Works budget, as always, is improving roadway conditions and pedestrian safety. A proposed $2M goes to roadway resurfacing to fix potholes and other roadway distress points throughout the Town. I am also recommending $2M for curb replacement as needed and another $1M toward pedestrian safety improvements that include sidewalks, crosswalks and certain roadway changes.


Another major priority of the DPW is tackling drainage issues which exist all over the town. We are currently working on numerous flood control initiatives including Troublesome Brook and Manhattan Brook. The $2M being requested would be used for engineering studies and/or actual flood mitigation initiatives.


Significant improvements proposed by the Parks and Recreation Department include a complete renovation of the East Rumbrook Park Basketball Courts for $250,000, the most used outdoor courts in town that were built in the 1970s with a surface overlay in the mid-’90s; a replacement of the AFV Administration Building roof for $320,000; and the addition of six pickleball courts in Town, including four created at E. Rumbrook Park for a budget outlay of $145,000.


Notable purchases for the DPW include two Class-8 heavy duty trucks for winter snow and ice control and heavy hauling capacity during other seasons at $425,000, and Automated Refuse Collection equipment for $360,000. The Police Department proposes a replacement for Ambulance 1 at $100,000, and the installation of an interoperable two-way radio system ($395,000) to replace the emergency communications system equipment for the entire town. 


$6.75M of the proposed budget will be for the Dromore Settlement.


The dollar amounts in the capital budget are estimates. I look forward to hearing from the public. The entire proposed budget is attached and can be read online.
