SPRING LAKE, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — A Sandy-damaged town in New Jersey has received a federal grant to reduce the risk of flooding there.
As WCBS 880’s Levon Putney reported, Gov. Chris Christie took time between presidential campaign stops to head to the shore town of Spring Lake in Monmouth County.
“So important about today is that it’s another step,” said Christie.
A $3.85 million grant’s worth of a step, which will go toward a more than $6.7 million post-Sandy project for homes near the coastal lake, Putney reported.
