Village work leaves some residents unhappy

    DUNDEE—During the meeting of the Dundee village board on Tuesday, Aug. 9, trustee Greg Wright spoke about comments he has received from residents.
    Wright said the concerns have been regarding the poor job being done on gas lines on Union Street. The main concern is restoration of areas disturbed by construction to their previous condition. Streets Superintendent Andy Howell said some residents took pictures of the area in front of their property prior to construction. Howell said three or four different crews have worked on the project. The contract requires the areas to be put back in the condition it was in before construction. Wright commended Howell for sticking up for the homeowners.
    Mayor Fred Cratsley Jr. commented, “Some of the projects have never happened here before. The village has never had as many construction projects at one time.” Cratsley listed the state paving of Route 14A, the school project and gas line replacement. More work is scheduled on Saunders and Water Streets.
    Cratsley suggested Wright and Howell videotape those areas prior to the work being started. Cratsley also suggested homeowners take photos of their property. Cratsley asked Village Clerk Christine Sutherland to write a letter to New York State Electric and Gas regarding village concerns. The utility hired subcontractors to perform the restoration work.
    In other business: Passed a resolution that requests the New York State Department of Transportation to install a traffic light at the intersection of Water and Millard Streets.
    • Three public hearings are on the schedule for the next village board meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 29. The board will receive comments on an amendment to the cemetery chapter of village code, an amendment to the vehicle and traffic chapter of the code, and to establish the annual meeting date of the Dundee Fire Company.
    • Cratsley thanked Barrington and Starkey for their help on the recent streets project. He singled out Barrington Highway Superintendent Steve Wheeler for his support in supplying an excavator for the project.
    • The regular meeting of the village board on Tuesday, Sept. 13 was canceled. Primary elections are that day.
    • Fire Chief Ray Miller said the department continues to be busy. Miller said there were 60-some ambulance calls last month.
    The next meeting of the Dundee village board will be at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 27.
