Hudson River Village Receives Funding For Sandy Costs

Wikipedia, Alexisrael

A village along the Hudson River is receiving federal funds to help recover from Hurricane Sandy.

The more than $1.7 million in federal funding is for the Village of Nyack to cover costs for repairs made to Memorial Park and the local marina, which were damaged during Hurricane Sandy. The Rockland County village needs to repair many of the retaining walls in Memorial Park as well as replace many docks and retaining walls at the marina along with the public launch dock. And the village must replace the entire electrical system for the marina, as well as two-thirds of the bulkhead barrier, both of which were destroyed in the 2012 storm. U.S. Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, along with Congresswoman Nita Lowey, announced the funding that is covering 90 percent of the total project cost.
