Chaucer sidewalk project complete
The Baldwinsville Department of Public Works finished the final pour for the Chaucer Circle sidewalk project last Thursday. The $50,000 project was funded by a grant secured by Sen. John DeFrancisco. Mayor Joseph Saraceni said the project came in under budget and the village will consider using the remaining funds on additional projects.
