Nyacks Seeks Anti-Gang Funds from Other Nyacks

Nyack Mayor John Shields is asking Orangetown, South Nyack and Upper Nyack to contribute funds to a community gangs-prevention program for The Nyacks at The Nyack Center. The funding will double the number of participants who can join the program. The program is in response to the April 16 mini-riot in South Nyack. Shields said the village would only contribute if the other communities agreed to chip in, too.

The Rockland County Youth Bureau has contributed $46,000 to fund 20 participants in the Youth Outreach gang-prevention program.
