Mayor’s Report for 09-28-2018

Village Update – September 28, 2018

The paving of Field St., Irwin St., Clover St., Gardenier Lane and Wolcott St. as well as Bayview was completed last week. Most of the shoulder work associated with these roads was completed last Friday. At last week’s Board meeting, the board voted to make Lakestones Drive a public road. Repairs to that will occur next week.

Remember to drop your e-waste off at the Village of Sodus Highway Barn on October 6th at 39 Gaylord Street from 9am until 1pm.

Mark Poretta Excavating will begin to repair the sewer mains that are cracked beginning next week. Minor traffic disruptions are expected as they move through the Village. At the Board meeting last week, we accepted the low bid for waterproofing the manholes. The issues with the products to be used were resolved by our engineer. This should put us in good shape for wastewater for any high water next Spring.

The invitations for the Post-Flood Recovery Building Workshop sponsored by NY Sea Grant and Genesee/Finger Lakes Regional Planning Council are out. A second wave will go out soon after RSVP’s have been received. We are looking for strong village resident participation as well as county, state and federal agencies. The workshop will take place on October 30th and a draft report presented to the village board in the Spring.

Work on the drainage projects for this year will begin the week of October 15th. We will begin on the east end of the loop, move to Route 14 at the main lift station and then to Bay St?Extension & Wickham Blvd.

After a two-year review of different options to save money on our street lighting by acquisition and conversion to LED, at its September meeting the board decided to accept the Wayne County LED Aggregation Program led by the New York Power Authority (NYPA). The purpose of the program is to consolidate municipal streetlight conversion into one or more larger projects providing an incentive to the project, with an overall short term and long term savings. Presently there are five other municipalities starting with the Village. The program will provide an immediate positive cash flow in savings for the Village. The design phase, that includes public meetings and photometric analyses (simulated lighting designs.) is expected to begin in January.
Stay tuned.
