The Wayne County Board of Supervisors took additional steps Friday as part of preparations for three flood mitigation and restoration projects under its scope.
At a special meeting to discuss the Resiliency Economic Development Initiative — or REDI — program, County Administrator Rick House said supervisors were briefed on the project scopes and funding needs for the three projects at Crescent Beach, Blind Sodus and Port Bay.
New York state is providing approximately $30 million in funding to Wayne County for restoration efforts toward barrier breaches and slope stabilization at those three locations, House said, with the county responsible for 5 percent of project costs. The board made no decisions on where those funds will come from.
Wayne County was awarded funding for 10 projects, with the county taking on three of them.
