A $1.8 million project is in the works for Radisson.
The Lysander town board approved construction of the $1.63 million Stanford Drive pumping station and $180,000 in improvements at the 27-year-old River Road pumping station. Due to outdated and deficient equipment at the existing site, the Stanford Drive station will receive an overhaul that includes a new wet well, control building, pumps and controls, odor control and generator. The two stations serve 70 percent of Radisson and the Fairways North sewer districts.
The town plans to divide the project cost over a 20-year period to the 2,376 units benefiting from the new station and improvements. Residents of the serviced areas will see an estimated $66 increase in their sewer district bill in 2008.
Commemorative marker for Crego home
The old Crego Farm in Van Buren has been designated as a New York State and National Historical Site and is on the state and national register.
"This house will always be a cornerstone of the community," said Amy Stewart, the home's current owner.
Stewart and her husband, along with Van Buren Historian Elizabeth Bowers, requested financial support from the town to help pay for a commemorative bronze marker for the site at 7979 Crego Road. The total cost of the marker including shipping is $935. The marker will help people to recognize the importance of the property, most importantly the architectural significance of the home.
Stewart and her husband went through the lengthy process of having the landmark designated as a NYS and National Historical Site after purchasing the home about two years ago.
Using funds from the historical purposes budget, the Van Buren board approved the request and asked the Baldwinsville Historical Society for support to help to ensure completion of the project.
