Erie County Legislator John Mills anticipates an increase in Consolidated Local Street and Highway Improvement Program [CHIPS] funding from New York State will have a significant impact on local road issues. State leaders announced that Erie County will receive an additional $1.29 million in funding this year.

 

“In the district I represent, roads are always a major concern and several towns and villages will benefit greatly from the increased CHIPS funding. In return, this will allow crews to start repairing our roadways,” said Legislator Mills. “I want to thank the Erie County Association of Highway Superintendents for its hard work and successfully advocating for this additional funding.”

 

He added that government has a responsibility to properly maintain and repair its infrastructure and that going forward road work must remain a top priority.

 

“Here in Erie County we have identified several projects that need immediate attention and I have been in communication with the administration to see that repairs are scheduled,” Legislator Mills added.

 

New York State increased CHIPS funding for 2013 by $75 million statewide.
