FARNHAM TO GET $100,000 GRANT

Mayor Terry Caber of the Village of Farnham said Thursday that the village will receive a $100,000 grant to help pay the cost of moving the village's 70-year-old water lines.

Caber said Assemblyman Dick Smith, D-Hamburg, secured the funding from the state assembly's Multi Modal Fund.

"He petitioned Speaker Sheldon Silver to release the money for the water project," Caber said.

The money will go a long way toward funding the project, Caber said. The village's water lines, which are under the roadway on Route 5 in Farnham, need to be moved after a recent state road improvement project imperiled the fragile lines, Caber said.

"This funding provides a substantial amount of relief to the financial hardship we were in," he said. "And it will provide for the future integrity and stability of the water system."
