— In other business, Lawton updated the Village Board on the five repair projects for storm damage in 2011. The $1 million in repairs will be funded through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), with the federal government picking up 87.5 percent ot the cost and the village paying for the balance.

“We are at a point right now where we want to go to bid with the contracts,” Lawton said, adding that he expects the village to award bids in late July.

The FEMA projects are: reconstructing two sections of a wall at Hydro Park; reconstructing the wall at Alpine Terrace (behind the Rusty Nail bar); reconstructing a wall at Pelkey Lane; repairing wall at the old village office building at 3 Main St.; and repairing concrete work at the intake of the hydro plant at 17 Main St.

Construction for the five projects is expected to take three months to complete.
