Town of Union, NY (WBNG Binghamton) The Town of Union is looking to its residents to show the way forward to full flood recovery.

A new website aimed to gather public feedback on the development of a long term community recovery strategy will launch Friday.

The website is called The ReUNION Project 2020 and is part of the town's recently secured $10.1 million Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery program.

The website, which includes an interactive survey, will allow residents and businesses to offer suggestions on where the disaster recovery grant money should be spent.

"Our residents and our businesses are our eyes and ears, and it never hurts to listen to everyone," Town Supervisor Rose Sotak said.

The Town of Union partnered with Socialmomentum, LLC to create the website.
