BATH, N.Y. (WENY) -- The Steuben County Legislature approved a state grant to improve public safety Monday. The approximately $6 million will let the county partner with surrounding counties including Chemung, Schuyler and Allegany to improve communications between first responders.

According to the county, the money will go towards the "development, consolidation, improvement, sustainability and maintenance of public safety communications in the four counties".

Among other items, the Legislature was expected to appropriate $4.4 million dollars in funding from New York's Consolidate Highway Improvement Program to add 10 more road improvement projects to be completed this year. 

At the same meeting Monday, lawmakers also expected to approve the payment of $500,000 to expand the county's landfill by removing bedrock at the site. 

Lawmakers were in session at the county Annex.
