Monday's announcement by Governor Cuomo of plans for a $2 billion clean water infrastructure act caught local officials by surprise.
Auburn City Councilor Jimmy Giannettino is also one of the driving forces behind the Save Owasco Now group. He's hoping the state will direct some of the funds to addressing the long term health of Owasco Lake.
He tells Finger Lakes News Radio it will be interesting to see what happens next.
The Governor announced the proposal during his state of the state address in Buffalo.
