The Village Needs Your Help

For four years, I, Mayor Manicki have attempted to get the county highway dept. to take action to make repairs to Exchange St. and Crittenden Rd. On March 4, I wrote to Public Works Commissioner Loffredo. To date I have not had the courtesy of a reply. Through the efforts of Legislator Ted Morton I was able to find that once again, no repairs are scheduled for these streets this year. It was stated that the reason is, it is a very expensive project to repair Exchange St.
