City officials are grateful to receive this funding from State and County governments.  “It’s always nice when funding for these projects comes from outside sources”, said City Manager Peter J. Capone.  The City has been actively soliciting grant money for a variety of causes including domestic preparedness, recreation and transportation related projects.  “We seek out these funds whenever possible so as not to impose too heavy a burden on local taxpayers”, said Mr. Capone, who was hopeful that additional grant money would be forthcoming in the near future.
