State Sen. George Maziarz has announced the enacted 2014-15 state budget contains $40 million specifically for road repairs after this particularly harsh winter. Nearly $600,000 of this will be allocated for local governments in Niagara County in "Extreme Winter Recovery Grants." 

This grant money comes on top of record-level funding for the Consolidated Local Street and Highway Improvement Program, the normal mechanism for delivering state aid to municipalities for surface improvements on locally controlled thoroughfares. In this year's state budget, between CHIPs increases and the EWR grants, Niagara County local governments are slated to receive aid increases of between 8 percent and 12 percent over last year.

"As Niagara County residents know, this last winter did a lot of damage to our streets and roads," Maziarz said. "As a result, we are driving record amounts of aid to local governments so we can help them fix potholes and patch road surfaces. I made this a priority in our budget negotiations, and I'm glad we were successful. Between the CHIPS dollars and this extra money set aside for pothole repairs, we are helping to address the problems local residents face every day when they are driving to work, to school, or to the store."
