"This would all be a big break to our taxpayers," said Ballston Supervisor Frank Thompson.
As a first step in obtaining grant funding for the construction of a shared salt storage shed, Village trustees authorized hiring an outside consultant to write the grant to the NYS Governor's Commission on Local Government Efficiency for $150,000. The consultant would be paid $4,000 to write the application, split equally between Ballston Spa and Milton.
"We've had good success obtaining grant funding when the application is a collaborative effort," said Romano. "If this grant doesn't come through, we'll research other ways to get the project done."
