Carried – 3 – 0


Don Rhodes, Laberge Group, addressed the Board regarding infrastructure projects and funding.  The report Laberge has been working on identifies Heath St & Hill Ave as top priorities, as well as Main St & Sherman Ave.  Mr. Rhodes detailed the water & sewer issues on Main St and Sherman Ave including a water line that crosses private property and connections to an old 4-inch water main that should be abandoned.  Mr. Rhodes also detailed the Heath St & Hill Ave issues.  The budget Mr. Rhodes presented the Board includes sewer replacement on  Heath St, but he feels the lines can be slip-lined to save money and still have a 50-year life expectancy.  Supt Lozier stated Heath & Hill were top priorities to complete replacement of utilities on the entire east side of the Village.

The Board requested a Special Board Meeting to discuss options in further detail but agreed to begin the SEQR process to stay within the grant submission timeline.
