— Willsboro Supervisor Edward Hatch said that he would just like the work completed that was promised in 2009.

Hatch moved a resolution at the Feb. 6 monthly board meeting of the Essex County Supervisors, imploring the state Department of Transportation to complete work that was part of a 2009 construction plan for the Willsboro Mountain portion of NYS Route 22.

“I just want to have a completion to the 2009 planned repairs to the road,” Hatch said. “It is a section of road that is vital to the towns of Willsboro and Chesterfield, it is a bike path and part of the Lakes to Locks Passage, and it is a patched-up mess.”

Board chair Randall “Randy” Douglas of Jay agreed with Hatch.

“It is a mess, and we have met with DOT officials and every time that we do, that is a top concern each time we go down there.”

Elizabethtown Supervisor Margaret “Maggie” Bartley said that Gov. Andrew Cuomo had spoken about funding for 20 miles of roadwork during his Feb. 3 speech in Plattsburgh.

“The money may be in the budget, but the question will be if they keep it in there,” Hatch said.
