Written by U.S. Rep. Gary Ackerman Friday, 30 October 2009 00:00I have been reading in the Illustrated News about the problems that the Village of Williston Park has been experiencing in accessing the $1 million in road improvement funds I secured for the area.
I have been working closely with Mayor Ludwig Odierna to remove these obstacles so that these critical infrastructure upgrades can finally move forward.
The village has now received approximately $100,000 to complete engineering studies. Once those studies are approved in the coming weeks, we can expect the remainder of the money to be distributed.
I was extremely pleased to secure these critical funds for Williston Park, and I look forward to this important project getting under way soon.
