LEROY — LeRoy Supervisors discussed road conditions and aggregate needs at the Monday night meeting on April 5.
Supervisors reflected on this past winter with the Roadmaster. After a long winter, it is common to re-grade roads throughout the township and fill in potholes in the spring.
To save money, supervisors agreed to bid for projects on Woodruff and Bonney Roads.
After these projects are completed, they plan to look at LeRoy Mountain Road and grade that road as well.
Supervisors also discussed aggregate and cinder needs for 2021. They plan to purchase about 20 loads of cinders to keep it in the phone bid range. However, supervisor Ted Tomlinson will look at other prices to see if they can get better pricing as well as better-grade aggregate and cinders.
Tomlinson will also be looking at dust control pricing to bring back to supervisors to approve.
Supervisors accepted the counter offer from Frontier Communications in which they will be paying for $3,300 in damages to a line on Beers Road. The incident took place in August 2020. Rather than continue counter offering and accruing legal fees, they felt this was the cheaper option. At last month’s meeting they reported that they offered $2,000 to the company.
The 414 intersection with Mill Street will house another “Children Playing” sign.
Supervisors also agreed to purchase a $500 plow for heavier snow, after the township received 30 inches of snow this past winter. They want to keep this equipment on hand in case another winter produces that much snow.
The next LeRoy Township supervisors meeting will be Monday, May 3, at 7 p.m. at the LeRoy Community Association building on Mill Street.
