State Budget Increases Aid for Town & Village
April 4, 2008
The Town of Tonawanda and Village of Kenmore will each see an increase in state aid in the new state budget now being adopted in Albany, Assemblyman Robin Schimminger announced today. I am pleased to report that in state budget bills we passed today not only did we reject a two percent cut in state aid to local governments that had been proposed by the governor, but we added a significant aid increase, said Schimminger. As a result, the Town of Tonawanda is slated to receive $635,562, a five percent increase, and Kenmore will receive $696,545, an increase of seven percent. Schimminger noted that last year the two municipalities received $605,297 and $650,977 respectively, in state aid.
