SHERBURNE – Despite dreary weather and slippery road conditions, Senator James Seward made the trip to Sherburne on Friday to see how the police department had used a $20,000 grant he secured for them. According to Village Mayor William Acee, the grant was a huge benefit to the department and to the local taxpayers.
“I have enormous respect for the men and women who serve in law enforcement and place their lives at risk each and every day,” Seward said. “In small, rural communities across New York, local governments are challenged to provide important, necessary services and to do so on a budget. State funding helps provide local services and reduces pressure on the local budget.”
