Village Update – November 26, 2019
As you have likely already heard, the village was fortunate to secure 4 REDI grants. They include a grant to build a revetment at the base of White Birch Campground to secure that slope and protect a wastewater line in place. A similar project was funded at Lakestones Drive. Along the beach, in front of the numbered streets, a beach berm with walkovers was approved. The largest project is a new stormwater conveyance system for Wickham Blvd, Bay St Extension and Greig Street. This project will help us better manage the floodwaters, provide permanently installed pumps, disguised in small cottages and also allow us to implement some of the sidewalk improvements recommended in the Active Transportation Program that is just finishing up. The Village Board has approved contracts to hire engineers and designers for each of these projects and we are working to secure the necessary contracts from NYS. This will be the number #1 priority for the Village Board.
You will see survey crews in the Village beginning today for the next few weeks. They will be getting the base mapping required to design the stormwater conveyance system. They will begin in the street and work out to the front of each house/business. Please be cautious around them as they do their work.
The initial design work for each REDI project must be submitted to NYS by February 14, 2020. This means that we will be working these projects aggressively over the winter. To keep residents up to date a separate section has been created on our web site. You will find conceptual renderings of what is proposed there now. More information will follow as it is available.
Construction of each of these projects must be permitted and for most projects, the water needs to be lower. Though it is hoped that some of the revetment projects can be done over the summer, it is likely that the fall will see lots of activity.

Some primary property owners have received denials from Sheen Housing. It seems the rules are different in 2019 from 2017. Make sure Senator Helming and Assemblyman Manktelow know of your issues. They continue to fight hard on our behalf. A reminder to secondary homeowners, your applications are due December 10th.
The business program is now open for applications.
There are still many questions regarding how this program will be administered but it is important to get your applications completed.
We clearly lost ground with our water levels in the month of November. Our level today is 246.06, the same level we were at on October 24th. The announcement late last week that the commissioners have given the River Board authority to deviate from the plan through June 2020 may be helpful. They have had this authority since last June as long as the water levels exceeded the trigger levels. That has been the case for most of that time and most of us believe more water could have been let out. They now have the authority regardless of the trigger levels. After a discussion with members of the River Board and the commissioners, I expect an announcement of a plan for the winter months very soon. We have tentatively been told that prior to ice formation they are planning to go to 500 cm/s over the L limit. To date, they have capped that at 200 cm/s. They also plan to exceed the I limit after ice formation in 100 cm/s increments. The final part of the proposed plan will be to delay shipping a few weeks in the spring. Hopefully, we will see a formal announcement very soon. The L limit, I limit and F limit is all a part of Plan 2014. If you want to learn more there are some great videos on YouTube. The most straight forward one I have seen to date is here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=zep-tRBE5_w
