Work begins on historical society building

    DUNDEE—Work to restore and replace bricks on the Dundee Historical Society building began Thursday, Oct. 15 after the Dundee Village Board voted to approve the project the week before. The project, being worked on by Joe Cacciola, will cost $12,100 to complete and will be put toward reworking the large sections of bricks missing on the outside of the building.
    During the board meeting Tuesday, Oct. 23, Cacciola talked to the board about his progress, showing photos he has taken of the building highlighting certain areas he will have to work on. Cacciola said overall, the building is in much better shape than he expected it to be. He also thanked the board for being good stewards of Dundee’s historical heritage.
    Mayor Fred Cratsley Jr. said Cacciola is experienced in historical restoration and is able to use older style bricks and mortar to repair the building while keeping with its historical visual appeal. Cacciola said the older style of bricks do not repel water as well as newer ones, but rather they absorb it and divert it away from the building itself, preventing moisture from getting behind the walls.
    In other business:
    • The board approved a motion to install a street light on the last electrical pole on the westernmost side of MacLaren Drive.
    • The board approved to have human resources consultants come in to put in a proper workplace risk evaluation in order to install a workplace violence prevention program. Town Clerk Christine Sutherland said it was necessary to move forward with the town handbook and was supposed to be completed back in 2009.
    The next meeting of the Dundee Village Board is Tuesday, Nov. 13 at 7 p.m.
