Assemblyman James Skoufis (D-Woodbury) has announced a $7,000 grant to fund the purchase of speed radar signs for the Stony Point Police Department.
Assemblyman Skoufis was approached last year by a local resident who expressed concern that her neighborhood along Major Andre Drive was being used as a cut-through by speeding motorists. Skoufis then got to work on identifying funding to mitigate the situation and make our local streets safer for families.
“These new radar signs have a proven track record and will help keep motorists mindful of the speed limit,” said Assemblyman Skoufis. “I’m always on the lookout for ways to support the Stony Point Police Department’s exemplary work in our community.”
“The Stony Point Police Department appreciates Assemblyman Skoufis’ continued support of our public safety efforts,” said Police Chief Brian Moore. “This funding will allow us to purchase speed radar signs which will help reduce speeds and make our roadways safer for all.”
“The Town of Stony Point thanks Assemblyman Skoufis for his help in securing this grant,” said Supervisor Jim Monaghan. “The speed radar signs are a much needed tool for our police department in helping to secure the safety of our residents.”
