Information and Resources for Recovering From a Flood Event

June 2015 Flood Event Recovery

 

The Town of Richmond is grateful for NYS Senator Rich Funke's support in securing $300,000 in state infrastructure funding to help our municipality repair roads and drainage systems, and implement preventative measures to reduce future flood damage. Because statewide damage from a June 2015 flood event did not meet the minimum threshold for FEMA funding, this support was essential in covering key repairs without placing an undue burden on local taxpayers.
