Schumer calling for funding to clean up Glens Falls

GLENS FALLS - Senator Charles Schumer is looking to keep Glens Falls on the upward path to re-development and expansion.

He is pushing for funding from the Brownfield Cleanup Grant to help the city to revitalize six high-priority brownfield sites that are currently eyesores, raise health concerns and hurt downtown redevelopment.

Schumer stresses the concern that a few of the sites are old textile mills that may harbor hazardous materials.

Senator Schumer is urging the Environmental Protection Agency for $700,000 towards clean up.
