In light of record-high water levels reported today on Lake Ontario, Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,C,I-Batavia) met with Gov. Cuomo, head of Economic Development, Howard Zemsky, members of the administration and state senators and assemblymembers who represent districts along the shoreline to discuss a solution.
Hawley wrote to President Trump last week asking him to renegotiate Plan 2014.
“We had a productive meeting today in Albany in order find a solution to the uncontrollable flooding of Lake Ontario,” Hawley said. “Gov. Cuomo reiterated his new task force to study the situation and come up with solutions, including long-term economic development strategies that include local government support. Permits for residents and businesses are being expedited and I will continue to update residents as we quickly work toward a relief package in Albany.”
