Yonkers, Rochester clash over brownfield program

The mayors of Yonkers and Rochester find themselves poles apart over how 
to clean up contaminated former industrial sites known as "brownfields."

The debate will resume next week at the Capitol.

Yonkers Mayor Philip Amicone wants to keep the current program, which 
has committed hundreds of millions of dollars to only a few developers 
in the past few years.

But Rochester Mayor Robert Duffy backs a proposal by Gov. David Paterson 
to cap the amount that can be awarded to a developer so that more sites 
can be cleaned up with existing state funds.
