Flood Mitigation & Relief Funds

NYS Senator Rich Funke and the Town of Richmond are working together to identify long-term solutions to mitigate flood damage. Learn more:



Richmond Supervisor Ralph Angelo successfully worked with Senator Rich Funke to  secure $300,000 in state infrastructure funding to help repair local roads and drainage systems, and implement preventative measures to reduce future damage. We are appreciative of Senator Funke's support in securing these funds, which are essential to allow our municipality to make needed repairs and upgrades without placing an undue burden on local taxpayers.
