October 22, 2016 -- The office of Assemblyman Charles D. Lavine (D-13th AD District) announced recently that the Assemblyman has secured $125,000 in state funding for the Village of Sea Cliff to be used for the restoration of the Tudor revival style Fire Department which was built in 1931.
“I am pleased to have the opportunity to provide funding through my office for the Sea Cliff Fire Department’s renovation” said Lavine.
Funds will be used to refurbish the steel casement windows in the 85 year old structure. The rehabilitation must be within the guidelines of historic landmark specifications for the building is on the National Register of historic places.
“Sea Cliff village is truly a special place that has been successful at preserving its history. The fire department is just one example of several buildings that have maintained the small town charm that makes this quaint village so distinct” said Lavine.
“The fire department building is one of the historic jewels of our village. The cost of restoring these windows as opposed to replacing them would place a tremendous financial burden on the community. We are very grateful to Assemblyman Lavine for securing significant financial assistance in this project.” Mayor Bruce Kennedy said.
In the past, Assemblymember Lavine has provided the village with state funds that were used toward the construction of the boardwalk and restoration of the sidewalk and railing as well as the design and construction of the sewer line.
This grant will come through the State and Municipal Facilities Program and will be directed to the village.
