The water tank repair project in Waterville is underway and going well.
At last week’s Village Board meeting, DPW Superintendent Jamie Bechy said a majority of the repairs were done last week. Sealant has been placed on them and needs a week or so to set, he said.
The tank itself is in good shape, he said, and the repairs should lengthen its life by several decades. Village residents are still asked to conserve water until the tank is back in service around June 1.
Bechy said he is getting estimates on repairing the air conditioning unit in Village Hall. The repairs will also include switching to the more environmentally friendly freon gas.
Codes officer Whitey Brown said he sent a violation notice to Walt Friebel for his White Street property that remains in violation a year after the board began citing him and took him to court. The deadline to clean debris out of the yard is June 1.
In other codes matters, a demolition permit was issued for the house on Berrill Avenue that has been vacant and condemned. Work is being done to clean up the Tyler Building on Main Street.
Trustee Dan Nichols said an energy project application will be submitted to the state by June 20 to be reviewed by NYSERDA by the end of June.
