Mar 17, 2022

Today, U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand revealed that the City of Salamanca will receive $303,000 in funding from the omnibus funding package for Fiscal Year (FY) 2022. The funding will allow the city to upgrade HVAC equipment and water conservation and conduct weatherization upgrades of the City’s municipal building.

By upgrading and weatherizing municipal infrastructure, these resources will lay the groundwork for the City of Salamanca’s future,” said Senator Gillibrand. “I am proud to have worked to secure this funding to address some of the region’s most pressing problems and I’ll keep fighting to bring federal dollars back home to New York.”

I would like to thank Senator Gillibrand for this $303,000 grant which the City of Salamanca greatly needs,” said Mayor Sandra Magiera of the City of Salamanca. “This will update city hall to an energy efficient cooling and heating system. Our building has not seen any upgrades since it was built in 1974. During the last two years with COVID, this would help with a much needed upgrade to our ventilation system and overall air quality. We are honored that we were chosen to receive this and that you are working with us on making a difference in our great community.
