Saranac Lake Seeking Help With Infrastructure Project

The Village of Saranac Lake is seeking assistance from residents to help move a planned infrastructure project forward. The sewer line that runs the course of the Lake Street area (between Main St. and Edgewood Rd.) is critical infrastructure that needs to be replaced. Due to the scope of the project, grant funding is needed in order to complete the project in the near future. If a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) in the amount of $920,000 can be used for this project it can be completed 2021. The CDBG program required the municipality to demonstrate that at least 51% of the residents in the project area meet certain income guidelines.
