Local government state aid flat

Aid to municipalities (AIM) in the negotiated state budget is the same as last year.

Most municipalities expected their state aid to remain flat this year and budgeted accordingly. A copy of the aid breakdown is available below.

"We planned very conservatively," said village of Middleburgh Mayor Matthew Avitabile. The village receives $8,380 in state aid.

"We always hope for an increase," he said. "We always hope for more, but we try to keep realistic budget expectations"

City of Gloversville Mayor Dayton King said the consistent state aid was in keeping with Gov. Andrew Cuomo's position that local governments need to find savings. "I wasn't surprised," he said of AIM breakdown.

Gloversville is getting just over $2.3 million in state aid.

The Assembly's budget resolution had proposed a 10 percent increase in AIM funding.
