TOWN OF MAMAKATING, NY (October 5, 2014) – Senator John Bonacic (R/C/I – Mt. Hope) has secured a grant of $100,000 for the Town of Mamakating from the State & Municipal Facilities Capital Program.
Project details call for the replacement of existing and aging boilers at the Town Hall with a single high efficiency boiler, and repair and substantially upgrade the air conditioning with a single system. The Town Hall also houses the Senior Center and is used as an emergency shelter in times of storms and power outages.
“The Town Hall is now showing signs of aging, and while we have corrected numerous substandard conditions, this is an immediate need that is draining our heating and cooling budget,” said Supervisor William Herrmann (photo right). “These upgrades and replacements will create a more comfortable and safe atmosphere, as well as a shelter when needed, for our residents, and the local seniors. Thank you, Senator Bonacic, for your help obtaining this funding for these critical repairs.”
“I am pleased to be able to secure these funds for the Town of Mamakating,” said Senator Bonacic. “This will allow Town Hall to be able to install more efficient heating and cooling systems, and keep energy bills down without raising taxes.”
