TOWN BOARD TO PURSUE STATE FUNDING FOR VARIOUS PROJECTS

The Hamburg Town Board dotted a few i's and crossed some t's Monday afternoon in its quest for state funding for several projects.

At a work session, the board passed two resolutions authorizing the supervisor to apply for funding through the 1996 Clean Water/Clean Air Bond Act for sewers at Highland Acres and in the Engel Drive area.

"This is the easy part," Town Engineer Gerard M. Kapsiak said. "I still have to complete the application."

Sewers at Highland Acres will help alleviate pollution problems in the surrounding area and at Woodlawn Beach State Park. Improving the water quality of 18 Mile Creek is the goal of the Engel Drive project.

The board also authorized the supervisor to apply for $24,000 from the state Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation to acquire part of Mother of Good Counsel Catholic Church property next to Meyer Playground. The town's share of the acquisition cost is $26,000.

The board also decided to apply for $199,920 in state parks funds for improvements to the town ice arena. The town is providing $208,000 in cash and in-kind services.

The board also is seeking $102,387 from the state Department of Environmental Conservation Municipal Waste Reduction and Recycling Program, with the town providing matching funds of $106,565.

"Most of these dollars have been expended by the town," Supervisor Patrick H. Hoak said.
