Village will install 20 new speed signs

WATKINS GLEN—The Watkins Glen village will initially install some 20 new speed limit signs in the next few weeks, weather permitting.
Police Chief Tom Struble explained, during the Monday, Feb. 4 village board meeting, the highway department will put up the signs in areas to inform drivers the speed limit has dropped from 30 miles per hours to 20 miles per hour. The change only affects village roads and not state roads like Route 14/Franklin Street.
Streets Department Superintendent Don Perry said the cost is $68 per sign, made by the county, but does not include the cost of installation. Struble said they will look to put the signs up where it makes the most sense. Trustee Anthony Fraboni suggested putting the new signs where it might be confusing for drivers.
In other business:
• Trustee Paul Clifford said the wastewater treatment plant supervisor retired last week. Trustee Scott Gibson said in order to temporarily fill the vacancy the village has hired Yaw’s Environmental Process Control to be the chief operator at the minimum number of hours. He explained, “we don’t want to be without a chief plant operator for any length of time.” Gibson added the village has contacted the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation to see if the agency wants the firm to go beyond the minimum number of hours. The village will look to fully replace the previous operator.
• The board approved increasing the rental costs for the community pavilion, Lafayette Park, and vendors to operate. Gibson said the increases range from $10 to $50. The changes are effective March 1.
• Off-Shore Marina was approved to repair five of the Clute Park campgrounds’ 10 docks for approximately $19,000. Parks Manager Michelle Hyde said the marina suggested this was the better idea, rather than actually replacing the docks. Trustee Kevin Smith agreed to the expenditure as long as the cost was not a problem for the parks department.
• A $59.67 credit was approved for the residence at 102 S. Decatur St. due to a leaking hot water tank.
• The board approved spending $3,800 to be a part of Schuyler’s countywide comprehensive plan development. Gibson said the village approved this last year.
