Town's taxes to dip in 2013


Tonawanda News — But for now, Emminger is cautiously optimistic.

“It’s a good day for our town,” he said. “And it’s something we will be happy to present at the public comment session.”

The budget’s public hearing will be held Nov. 8 at 7:30 p.m. in the Municipal Building.

The board also held a hearing and adopted a bond resolution for water line improvements on Delaware Road. The project will cost about $5 million.

Director of Water Resources Ken Maving said the project will be similar to phase 1 of Parker-Fries. The improvements will stretch from Brighton Road, through Sheridan Drive and end at Deerhurst Park Boulevard.

Construction will take place in July and August.

“There will be some disturbance to residents and tree loss,” Maving said.

Maving also provided an update on the sewer projects on Orchard Drive and Cleveland Drive. The laying of 16,000 feet of sewer lining was complete Oct. 11, according to Maving, and about 175 feet of spot repairs were done in areas with severe damage.

Contractors are also resurfacing man holes and completing final work on the project.

“We are making it so it will be good for a long time,” Maving said.

The project is set to be complete in two weeks. 

The board on Monday also approved Ledge Creek Development, Inc. to repair a wall at the Aquatic and Fitness Center, after a driver severely damaged it a few weeks ago.

According to Supervisor Anthony Caruana, the driver put the car in the wrong gear and smashed into the wall.

The estimated cost of the job is $54,000, most of which will be covered by the driver’s insurance.
