Christmas came early for the village of Dundee with the announcement that the village will receive two state grants totaling $1.355 million to make improvements to the village’s downtown streetscape and find ways to reduce the amount of stormwater that flows into the village’s sewage system.
The grants are part of $63.9 million in state funds coming to the Finger Lakes Region through the state economic development council announcements made last week. A total of $2.2 million will come to Yates County for various programs. Across the state, more than $755 million was awarded in the seventh round of awards through the program that pits 10 regions around the state in competition for dozens of grant programs. The awards were announced by Gov. Andrew Cuomo Wednesday, Dec. 13 in Albany.
