Rushford Village approves 2015 Pavement Management

The Rushford Village Council voted unanimously to approve the 2015 Pavement Management at the Tuesday, May 19 meeting. The council also approved a resolution for plans, specifications, and the advertising of bids for the road work. Bolton & Menk engineer Josh Pope was in attendance to discuss the details of the project.

Work that will be done includes sealcoating on Hayes Street (from Highway 43 east past Meadow Avenue), Sherwood Street, Money Creek Road, and Goodrich Avenue. Total projected cost is approximately $50,000. An overlay of Darr Lane, a $30,000 project, is also included. The council voted April 21 to include the option for sealcoating Prospect Street (from Sherwood to Main).

Pope is hopeful for competitive bids, but Dunn Blacktop Company may be the only bidder. Still, with the Highway 43 project being done next door in Rushford, the city is hoping bids will be excellent. If bids are too high, the city has the option to approve the project bid, but reject portions, according to Pope.

Bid opening is scheduled for June 12. An interim completion date of work is slated for August 31 to ensure temperatures are consistently above 60 degrees. The project would be wrapped up no later than mid-September.

The city is looking to reopen a public hearing for modifications to Zoning Ordinance 5 prior to accepting updates. City Attorney Tom Manion noted that while the city is eager to put the revised ordinance into motion, it is prudent not to rush when so much work has been put into the effort. A tentative reopening of the hearing is scheduled for the June 16 council meeting.

The city will also be holding a hearing for a Wellhead Protection Plan at the same meeting. The Wellhead Plan must be completed prior to July 1.

In other news, the city has run into some concern over parking of vehicles by Featherstone Farm along a crushed rock city-owned roadway east of Cooperative Way. “It’s been an ongoing thing,” noted Mayor Gordon Johnson. He further noted a desire not to create a financial hardship for the company in requiring a parking lot, but that parking is referenced as a requirement in section 1506.04 of the ordinance. According to Johnson, 10 to 12 vehicles are parked on the road on a daily basis with an additional six in the company parking lot.

“There’s a new campground east of Featherstone. We could find ourselves in a position of liability. I thin .....
