Queens Gas Money

The Region of Queens Council has approved an aggressive five year Capital Investment Plan to cover the fiscal years through 2014. Mayor John Leefe says the plan must be submitted to be eligible to receive the Region's transfer of the federal gas tax revenues. Leefe says there was some discussion with respect to the Brooklyn sewer and water project and others that must take place over the next five year period. The Region will receive $723,000 in federal gas tax money in each of the next five years.
