Maloney Cheers Announcement that Mayor de Blasio Keeping $180M for LIC in Budget

April 28, 2019

NEW YORK – Last October, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced an investment strategy for Long Island City that included funding for improving the sewers, investing in the central business district, improving transportation, creating new upland parks and building new schools, among other things. Today, April 25, the Mayor followed through on his promise by including the funding in his 2020 Budget Proposal. You can see the investment strategy document here. Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY), who represents Long Island City, released the following comment:

“I am delighted that Mayor de Blasio is keeping his commitment to the Long Island City community. I have made clear to him that I believe it is critically important for the city to fix the aging sewage system in Long Island City, which backs up every time it rains, to build new parks and schools to meet a growing population, to create new affordable housing and bring jobs to this community, to support the creative community that has developed in Long Island City and to enhance our overtaxed transportation system. Today, he is making good on his promise by fully funding the Long Island City Investment Strategy, including $95 million for sewer system improvements. In the coming months, I’ll be working with the de Blasio Administration to make sure the funding is invested as promised.”
