Mayoral Comment

I would like to clarify several items in regard to the village water system. The survey conducted last year asked residents if they wanted A) All village well water B) Connection to ECWA with minimum use, C) Connection to ECWA with 25% use or D) Connection to ECWA and discontinuing use of the village wells. 1021 surveys were sent and 260 were returned with the following results: A 14.6%, B 40.4%, C 11.2% and D 33.8%. 66.2% favored keeping the village wells in some fashion. The village hired an engineering firm to study each of these scenarios.

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.
