Nassau Gets $40 Million For Cleanup

Long Island’s Nassau County received more than $40 million in federal aid to help remove Sandy derbris.  New York Governor Andrew Cuomo gave more than $24 million hard-hit Long Beach, and almost $16 million to Nassau County Public Works to cleanup the mess that still mars streets and communities.

Governor Cuomo said. “This money will significantly help New Yorkers rebuild communities on Long Island and throughout the impacted areas. With the arrival of more support, New York will continue to move forward and build back stronger than before.”
