Mark Poretta Excavating continues to work on repairing our sewer mains. Please be patient when you encounter them as they often have to set up in the middle of the road. The paperwork phase of the manhole waterproofing project is now complete. This project will get started the week of November 5th.
The drainage repair on the east end of Greig St. is complete. As expected the existing pipe was plugged with roots and debris. Next up will be Route 14 by the main lift station and following that an extension of the Bay St Extension system onto Wickham Blvd. There is another repair on Greig St. that we hope to get to this fall. The utilities on South Ontario Street have all been marked and the planning for that drainage project is almost complete.
The last brush collection is Tuesday, November 13th. Remember brush and leaves need to be kept out of the roadway and should never be placed near a storm drain. All of our storm drains go into the Bay and eventually Lake Ontario. This type of debris encourages weed growth.

The Post Flood Recovery workshop sponsored by NY Sea Grant and the Genesee/Finger Lakes Regional Planning Council will take place next week. The output from this workshop is expected to be a prioritized list of projects to enhance the resiliency of village infrastructure, economic/tourism business, and the environment. Projects will then be further defined by the sponsors in conjunction with their experts and presented to the Village Board in the Spring.
The Village Board continues to work with Edge Architecture to evaluate all of our options regarding the village hall. It is clear from their initial report that we cannot afford to fix the current facility so we are looking for less expensive alternatives. Another workshop is scheduled for Thursday, November 15th at 5 pm. At our October workshop, it became clear that this is an opportunity to potentially get some public dock space. Those alternatives will be explored in detail so that the costs and pros & cons are well understood. The tentative plan is to have alternatives with enough detail to begin to get public comments early in the new year.
