Lake Ontario communities receive state aid for flood damage

Local governments in counties bordering Lake Ontario will receive a total of $2.9 million from the state for last year's flood and erosion damage.

None of the money announced Monday by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo will go to private property owners.

The deadline for homeowners to apply for aid was Sept. 29, while small businesses had until Dec. 31.

Niagara County government was paid almost $200,000 for its flood repair work along the shore. Porter was reimbursed $348,000 for erosion damage at Fort Niagara Beach, and the Village of Wilson received $10,000 for a new pump at its sewage treatment plant.

Two towns in Orleans County also received aid. Yates was paid $414,500 and Kendall $398,000 for shoreline erosion repairs. Other payments went to communities in Wayne, Cayuga and Jefferson counties.
