PLEASANT VALLEY, N.Y. -- Rebuild NY Now, a broad-based coalition seeking to raise public awareness about New York State's infrastructure needs, held a press conference on Monday co-hosted by Sen. Sue Serino.

They were joined at County Bridge PV-15, North Avenue, which passes over Shallow Stream in Pleasant Valley, by Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro and other local elected officials, members of organized labor, Chambers of Commerce and private local businesses.

Among the speakers were Ross Pepe, a member of Rebuild NY Now and president of the Construction Industry Council of Westchester, Serino, Molinaro, state Assemblyman Frank Skartados and Tom Hoyt, highway superintendent for the Town of Windham.

In an earlier news statement, Skartados said, “Poughkeepsie, like many cities in our region, faces enormous costs in maintaining its aging water infrastructure. Recognizing these financial challenges, I fought to include funding for upgrades to municipal water infrastructure in this year’s state budget."

“The state will invest $2 million to assist with the replacement of the 95-year-old College Hill Reservoir,'' Skartados said. "This significant state investment will ensure our families and businesses can continue to access clean drinking water, while helping to keep Poughkeepsie water rates affordable."

“I will continue to work with City of Poughkeepsie to ensure the successful completion of this project,'' the assemblyman said.
