Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi has secured $125,000 in capital funding in the state budget for the City of Rome.

The money will be used for technology and infrastructure improvements for the Rome Police Department, Rome City Hall, the Department of Public Works and the city's Waste Water Treatment Plants.

Brindisi says the projects will improve public health and safety, while also reducing operating costs for the City.

“We are sincerely grateful for the funding allocations that will help to strengthen operations and offer continued benefits through cost savings and efficiencies in the City of Rome,” Rome Mayor Jacqueline Izzo said.

In addition to renovations to the Police interrogation room, Izzo says the city is adding an EMS ATV vehicle so emergency medical personnel can access the growing recreational trail system; providing technology upgrades to allow digital presentations for public meetings at City Hall; and making security upgrades and storage and access improvements for the Department of Public Works and Waste Water Treatment Plants, including a new storage building for the Waste Water Treatment Department that replaces an old building.
