Nearly a year after flooding along Lake Ontario, Niagara County is now getting a big chunk of change to help pay for the damage.
New York State is giving $615,000 to the town of Newfane and village of Barker.
Newfane is being reimbursed for emergency expenses like equipment to pump storm drains cleaning drainage lines and sand bags.
In Barker, money will go toward building a 190-foot break wall in BiCentennial Park, which now has significant damage. Funding will also go toward preventing similar situations from happening again.
This money is all part of Governor Cuomo's $55 million recovery-effort plan to support homeowners, small businesses and infrastructure across the state.
