SLOAN – The Village of Sloan is getting a massive boost in state aid to help the municipality comply with a Department of Environmental Conservation consent order.

New York State has awarded the village $4.3 million through the Western New York Regional Economic Development Council.

The Village of Sloan will rehabilitate manholes and replace sewer pipe to address inflow and infiltration of the town’s sewer system. This project will improve the water quality of the Buffalo River.

Assemblymember Monica Wallace and Senator Tim Kennedy joined Village of Sloan Mayor Thomas Ferrucci in early November to announce over $1.5 million in state funding for the village.

The village’s estimated fiscal responsibility for complying with the DEC Order on Consent is around $6.08 million according to the state leaders.

The Western New York Regional Economic Development Council has awarded $66 million and will support around 118 projects that build on the region’s assets and invest in the future.
