TROY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – An infrastructure proposal that passed in the Troy City Council is now law.
The law requires a public hearing and vote to move funds from the water account. This comes after $6.4 from the water and sewer fund was used to cover deficits in the city’s general fund.
It left the city with no cash to repair issues like the water main break in Lansingburgh.
City council president Carmella Mantello announced Tuesday that after Mayor Patrick Madden took no action on the law, it went into effect under the city charter and municipal home rule law.
