KINGSTON – The Ulster County Legislature this week will approve an additional $1.5 million in state funds for the purchase and demolition of homes damaged by flooding.

Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Gerentine said state is providing additional dollars for the buyout program.

β€œIt was additional money that we did not have before. There was talk about it, but this is the actual bond itself and the money to move forward with it,” Gerentine said.
