BAINBRIDGE – Senator Tom Libous (R,C,I – Binghamton) and Assemblyman Pete Lopez (R,C,I – Schoharie) today announced that they have secured state funding for the Village of Bainbridge. The Restore NY grant program has awarded the Village of Bainbridge a $150,000 grant to be used in the clean up of an area currently occupied by structures that have been vacant for many years, hindering future economic progress.
“It’s important that we continue to create new opportunities for communities like Bainbridge,” said Senator Libous. “Restoring vacant property and developing vacant land is a great start to a larger economic boost for Chenango County. Like our ‘Upstate Now’ plan outlines, it is crucial that we continue to lower costs for small business and find new ways to reduce taxes for everyone.”
