Huntington Town Board approved a measure last week to fund road repaving and other improvements throughout the Town.
The board passed various bonding measures for improvements on Town property and at Town facilities, most of which are subject to permissive referendum, including funding for the rehabilitation of Town-maintained roads: paving, geometric and structural improvements, drainage improvements, and the resurfacing of parking lots.
“We have heard your safety concerns over the numerous potholes on roads throughout the Town and while our Highway Department has been repairing thousands of potholes this year on Town-maintained roads,” said Supervisor Chad A. Lupinacci. “Some of our roads are in such bad shape, they need to be completely repaved.”
The approved funding can only be used for Town-maintained roads.
In addition to road rehabilitation, the Town Board also approved funding for improvements to tanks and sumps at Town facilities, acquisition of drainage equipment, replacement of the roof at the old ice rink, and the installation of fencing at various locations.
