Brocton starting replacement of water lines

BROCTON - Following a positive pre-construction meeting held on Feb. 24, the Brocton Village Board reports steps are underway for an April 1 start to the water line replacement project to begin. Following the March 2 meeting of the village board, Brocton's outgoing Mayor Dave Hazelton explained the next steps to be taken in the process.

"I imagine they will start at the watershed property, come down the driveway of the plant to Ellicott Road and go that direction," stated Hazelton.

"All of the easements and surveys are in place, and the contractors are ready to go. I know they're anxious to get started."

The mayor added that confirmation was received by the board during the pre-construction meeting that once Brocton incorporates as a regional member of the regional water district in formation, debt service will be absorbed by the regional district for the water line replacement project.

In other matters, the mayor added that guardrails will be the next item on the list for the Peerless Street Bridge project, which will be picking up steam as blacktop plants open for the season. Once plants are open for seasonal work, village crews will begin work on the road portion of the bridge project.

The mayor added that he has had recent communication with Assemblyman Andrew Goodell regarding funding commitments for the Lake Avenue tunnel stop light to be replaced. In the meantime, the village still advises drivers to use caution entering and exiting the tunnel and to be sure to slow down to the posted 10 miles per hour speed limit.

In other matters, the board authorized two metal roofs to be placed on the buildings of the wastewater treatment plant, following an unsuccessful resolution with the vendor of the roofing tiles on the existing roofs.
