Erie County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz has proposed spending an additional $3 million for 2018 county road and infrastructure work.
“After a long and bitter winter, warm weather is upon us and it is time to expedite road repairs in Erie County," Poloncarz said in a statement. "While my administration has already committed an initial $28 million to road repairs in 2018, with the first $8 million of repairs already commenced, this additional $3 million will help to do even more.”
He urged the County Legislature to adopt the $3 million amendment. The original Capital Budget Bond Resolution already includes $800,000 to address a road slide on Ketchum Road in the Town of Collins and $500,000 to address a road slide on Burdick Road adjacent to Tonawanda Creek in Newstead, he said.
