County OKs purchase of shared highway equipment

NORWICH – One of the first actions taken by the Chenango County Board of Supervisors this year was to authorize the purchase of road construction equipment that will be shared among the 21 townships.



Sen. Thomas Libous promised the county $225,000 in New York State Department of Transportation funds during a campaign stop at the Chenango County highway garage in November of 2006. Members of the county’s Public Works Committee and the Chenango County Town Highway Superintendents Association worked together in order to design a plan for sharing the equipment.
