ONEONTA, NY - State dollars were at the center of the city of Oneonta's monthly council meeting Tuesday.

On the agenda was an authorization for the mayor to enter into an agreement with the New York Department of State for grant funding of $3,820,000.

The money would be used to offset costs for a number of items.

From developing a marketing plan for the city and renovations to the city‘s parking structure to the design and construction of a pedestrian walkway between main street and market street.

Mayor Gary Herzig says the money comes from the $10 million Downtown Revitalization Initiative that the city won from the state almost 2 years ago.

“This is all part of expanding our downtown to include the area known as Market street which is undeveloped. Create more of a destination, a center of innovation and creativity in the arts. It will attract more people to the city of Oneonta, which will help our businesses thrive and make the city a more vibrant and exciting place to be.“

The mayor also announced that the city would start taking applications for grants from the downtown improvement fund.
