Syracuse Receives $10 Million for Infrastructure

Vision local Miner and MagMayor Stephanie Miner and New York State Assemblyman William B. Magnarelli (D-Syracuse) have announced Syracuse will receive $10 million in state funding for infrastructure projects.

Assemblyman Magnarelli said he secured the funding from the Assembly’s $1.1 billion State and Municipal Facilities Program (SAM).

In addition, Mayor Miner, who previously had estimated it would cost $726 million to fix the city’s failing water mains, said she plans to use the money to apply for more funds.

“From road reconstruction to water mains and much more, the city has critical infrastructure needs,” Miner stated. “While much work remains, and I will continue to advocate to our leaders in Albany and Washington for additional funding and solutions to our infrastructure needs, this will certainly make a difference in our community. I am pleased that Assemblyman Magnarelli was able to obtain this money which will help make needed repairs.”

In addition, “Syracuse, like other urban centers throughout New York state and the nation, is experiencing critical needs for infrastructure repairs and upgrades,” said Magnarelli. “I feel confident that $10 million will jump-start some of the most critical areas in the city’s infrastructure, and I am committed to advocating for additional funds in the future.”

Miner has reportedly said she plans to develop a full financial plan and strategy regarding Syracuse’s infrastructure by fall.
