State wants second shift to fix bridge

MONTOUR FALLS—The Department of Transportation asked Montour Falls if there were any problems with crews working a second shift on the Route 224 bridge in Montour.
The Montour Falls village board said it had no problem with the extra work, at the Monday, June 21 board meeting. The Department of Transportation is in charge of the project, with CP Ward Inc. contracted to do the work.
The village was asked if there were noise restrictions that might limit working into the evenings. Montour board members agreed the workers should be able to work a second shift, baring any code restrictions. Mayor Donna Kelley said the village could give the workers a variance if there was a restriction.
Trustee Phil Smith said if it meant completing the bridge sooner, it’s a good idea.
In other business:
• Montour Falls Improvement Association President Phil Gillemot asked the board to approve putting up four brochure holders in the area of the falls park. He explained the small holders would have brochures about the Glorious T, and that the MFIA would be responsible for maintaining them. The board agreed.
• The board discussed ordering biodegradable leaf bags for village residents to use. Clerk Suzanne Casselberry said she spoke with the village of Watkins Glen, which offers such bags for free to residents. She got the company information, and how much Watkins Glen spent last year on the bags. Smith said it would be a good idea, but his concern was people putting things other than leaves/brush in the bags. The board discussed having the person’s name written on the bags. Casselberry will look more into the bags.
• The Montour Falls marina was inspected by the Department of Health June 11. Kelley said the two main things were, the old rest room was in poor condition, and some campsites are too close to each other.
• Kelley added that a pavilion at the marina still needs to be built. Trustee Sharon Wiedemer said Bud Kibee, code enforcement officer, mentioned the possibility of that being a Boy Scout project. Kelley said she would look into it.
• The board approved closing Main Street, from Henry/Owego Streets to Genesee Street for the Falls Harvest Festival, Oct. 9. Kelley said the festival will be from 1 to 8:15 p.m., but the street will be closed from 8 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. for set up and break down. The village also approved waiving the open container law, and allowing the use of the park for the festival.
• A representative from Badger Meter Inc. will be invited to the August meeting to talk about water meter replacement. Smith explained the water meters the village currently has will no longer be produced in 12 months.
The next board meeting will be Tuesday, July 6 at 7 p.m.
