Smithtown board votes to pursue NYS energy grants

Smithtown Town Board members have approved applications for several state grants to fund charging stations for electric vehicles, market renewable energy sources and hire a consultant to assist with a business owner’s plan for an indoor recycling facility.

The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority grants, all due June 16, require matching contributions from the town if they are awarded. The board voted unanimously, 5-0, last week on the three grants.

Frank DeRubeis, town planning director, said the Town of North Hempstead is making an application totaling $625,000 on behalf of all Long Island towns to create an east-west corridor of electric vehicle charging stations. If approved, Smithtown would contribute $30,000, he said.
