Police club criticizes town board

(Continued)

Tonawanda News — Also Monday, the body discussed a grant made available by the state that will go toward brownfield revitalization. The town will receive $275,400 to complete a plan for the redevelopment of eight potentially contaminated sites covering 385 acres, Town Engineer Jim Jones said. 

The work will take place on  brownfield sites in the River Road area, and the funding will help the town identify and explore options for the properties.

“We are looking forward to our continued work with our brownfields,” Jones said.

In total, $10 million in state grants will go toward 26 communities for brownfield work.
