Local governments across the state will receive nearly $10 million for doing away with multiple village governments.

The Town of Bridgewater is set to receive nearly $79 thousand in aid and the Town of Trenton will receive nearly $48 thousand.

Village residents will no longer pay taxes to both town and village government, they will now only be taxed to the town municipality.

Governor Andrew Cuomo says that at least 70 percent of the aid must be returned to residents in the form of direct property tax relief.

the Town of Trenton will also benefit for the dissolution of the Village of Barneveld.

It started as a petition to dissolve the village back in April, which lead to to a referendum vote, where the sweeping majority of voters in Barneveld voted to dissolve the village.

The Town of Trenton will receive a state tax credit. Those amounts are to be determined.
