In New York State, municipalities have varying levels of transportation services.
Communities considering improving efficiencies or making sustainable cost reductions in the area of transportation may be eligible for a Local Government Efficiency grant to assist with studying the feasibility of different options or to assist with implementation of a strategy.
Example: Steuben County created an inter-municipal stripping program that provides a paint stripping truck and crew dedicated to the participating 3 counties. This project provides on-demand road stripping capabilities, especially for newly completed construction projects. The paint stripping machine was funded from the 2007 SMSI grant program.
