Municipalities in Cayuga County, including the city of Auburn, will receive funding from the state to help repair flood control systems, according to a news release from Gov. Andrew Cuomo's office Monday.

The village of Moravia is the largest recipient of state funding in Cayuga County, with $205,000 for a flood control project. Port Byron will receive $45,000 for a flood control project, while Auburn and Weedsport each will get $15,000 for projects.

The village of Jordan in Onondaga County will receive $25,000 for a flood control project.

"For the second year in a row, New York state has passed a transformative and balanced budget that holds the line on spending, while focusing on job creation and government efficiency," Cuomo said in a statement. "The centerpiece of this budget is the New York Works program, which will help rebuild our aging infrastructure, including our dams and flood control systems, to protect people and property throughout our state."

Central New York will receive $6.25 million for 15 dam repair and flood control projects from New York Works.
