The Village has been working hard to improve the management of the Village's urban forest. Last year, the Village received a grant to fund the completion of the inventory through NYS's Urban and Community Forestry Grant Program. The inventory will provide management information such as the number of Village trees, health and species of the trees, work needs and sites to plant street trees located on the Village street right-of-way and Village properties. This information will be used develop work plans and budgets.
The Village solicited proposals from urban forestry consulting firms to complete the inventory and a contract was awarded to Urban Forestry LLC of Palmyra New York (www.urbanforestryllc.com). The inventory work is expected to begin this week and must be completed by the end of June this year. You may see the urban foresters Andrew Pleninger and Chris Luley walking the streets and parks completing the work in the coming weeks. They will be wearing yellow safety vests, carrying handheld computers to collect the inventory data and tools of the trade. Please be aware they will not be able to answer questions of work scheduling, Village policy or evaluate trees on private property.
For more information or questions please contact; Village Administrator Greg Emerson at 624-3620
MONROE STREET GAS LINE WORK UPDATE
We spoke with the contractor that is installing the new gas line on Monroe Street about their work schedule, completion date, and restoration of all.
The installation and new services should be complete at the end of this week. They intend to have all the rocks removed and all trenches leveled out by the end of next week.
As for landscaping, sidewalk replacement, and pavement repairs – That will be the end of April. I understand this due to the weather at this time of year. All the sidewalks that have been removed will have temporary asphalt in place until they are ready to concrete.
If anyone has any concerns you can contact Donna at Deery Construction – Her number is 607-522-3861
