A Letter from Chairman Schulteis

I know it's hard to believe, but maybe there are roads in worse condition than the one we live on. Criteria for the selection of 2016 road repairs were: road ratings, traffic volume, and shear necessity. To the credit of our residents understanding the overdue need for attention tot he town road conditions, our referendum in November of 2015 afforded us over $200,000.00 to proceed with an estimated $2.5 million worth of projected road repairs. Bids were let on anticipated projects at a special Town Board meeting on Tuesday April 26.

The Road Bids for 2016 were accepted as listed below:

  • CRACK FILLING, Awarded to Crack Filling Services: Mayfield Road (Hwy 60 North to Cedar Creek Bridge), Pioneer Road (Scenic Road East 1000 ft) and Stoney Lane (Hillside Road West to Dead End)
  • PAVEMENT MARKING, Awarded to Hilltop Asphalt: Keeley Drive (Hwy 144 to Dead End) and Hillside Road (Sherman Road, South 1278 ft)
  • ASPHALT REPLACEMENT, Awarded to Payne & Dolan: Pleasant Valley Road (Hwy Z West to just beyond Lilly Road) and Keeley Drive (Hwy 144 to Dead End).
    Awarded to Stark Asphalt: Hillside Road (Sherman Rd, South 1278 ft).

Much like an overwhelming debt, the first two years will seem to progress at a snail's pace, but progress it will.

Thank you in advance for your patience.

Albert Schulteis


Low hanging branches and shrubs

Foliage over roads can slow down or block access to homes or businesses when emergency vehicles come to help.
Most fire and rescue vehicles are much taller than personal vehicles, so please trim trees and shrubs over public roads and private driveways. Seconds count.
