Surveys results of county funding
By Jeff Simms
Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro joined Beacon Mayor Randy Casale last week to tour city projects funded with county grants.
Based on recommendations from a county committee, Molinaro has directed more than $2 million in government funding to Beacon since 2013.
The most recent projects included the repair of sidewalks on and the installation of decorative lighting on the east end of Main Street; a new entranceway and playground equipment at Green Street Park; drainage and sewer improvements on Mackin and Talbot Avenues; new sidewalks on Blackburn Avenue; repairs to Rombout Avenue; sidewalk repairs on South Avenue; and new playground equipment, basketball and tennis courts at South Avenue Park.
