Kolb Announces Additional State Aid For Finger Lakes Municipalities

March 29, 2006

Assemblyman Brian Kolb (R,C-Canandaigua) today outlined increases in state aid to municipalities approved by the state Legislature for the towns and cities in his 129th Assembly District.

“I am pleased that the legislature provided additional funding in this year’s budget to help municipalities,” said Kolb. “This funding will help hold the line on the local tax burden that homeowners in my district currently carry.”

Kolb noted an additional 19.61 percent, for a total of over $1.1 million, has been allocated for the city of Canandaigua and 24.11 percent, for a total of $1.8 million, for Geneva. In addition, towns in Assemblyman Kolb’s district, which includes parts of the Finger Lakes and Central New York regions, will see nearly 20 percent increases in state aid.

“This is part of our effort in this year’s budget to provide real relief to localities and homeowners.”
