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.

Ground Breaking on West Main Street

On March 10 Mayor Michael Manicki and board member Theodore Mezydlo joined Will Severyn, Alex Severyn and Bill Severyn from Severyn Development Inc. for a ceremonial ground breaking to kick off construction of the “Birch Creek Run” patio home subdivision on West Main Street in the Village of Alden. The $5,500,000 project will bring the first patio home community to the Village of Alden and offer 21 home sites. Each home will feature 1400 square feet of living space with two bedrooms, two full baths, kitchen with eating area and a large living room/dining room combination.

Village Crosswalks

There are three designated village crosswalk that intersect Broadway at Westcott, Emerson and Church St. State law requires drivers must yield the right-of-way to pedestrians, particularly if a pedestrian is in a crosswalk. This law is in effect all year long, even when the signs are not in the roadway. Thank you.
