It was announced by the town Zoning & Code Enforcement office that six new businesses will soon be locating in town. As soon as the plans are finalized, further details on the developments will be made available. Six land-use and development permits were issued last month and two septic permits were issued - all indications that the local economy is progressing in its recovery, Geraghty said.
It was announced the ultraviolet treatment apparatus at the town sewer plant has been completed and will be brought online April 15.
The town continues to work with the state Department of Health to boost water clarity and decrease leaching of minerals like copper. Soda ash is now being added to the system to raise the pH value of the water to minimize this effect.
Town employees reported that three water main breaks occurred last week. A break on the water main feed line near Ridge Ave. and River St. caused the water to be rerouted across the river at another location. This action cause some high pressure issues for some residents, and Geraghty apologized on behalf of the town for any inconvenience incurred to some households. All the breaks have been repaired, he reported. Several of the breaks were unavoidable, as they were due to the frost receding, town officials said.
The Warrensburg youth baseball league is working on installing an upgraded ballfield at Mark Bruce Park near Fourth Avenue and Park Street. Some trees are being removed for safety and a temporary fence will soon be placed along Fourth Avenue.
A moment of silence was observed for former town employee Wayne Reed, who recently passed away.
