>Cleanup deadline imposed at subdivision entrance
LEWISTON -- The Town Board on Monday gave Patrick Development 10 days to clean up a subdivision entrance at Hillside Drive and Cliff Street.
Councilman Sean Edwards said the homeowners in the area have been patient, waiting for nearly five years for grading and landscaping.
Highway Superintendent Steven Reiter said that his crews could do the work of grading and seeding in less than a week if the developer does not complete the work.
"We could do it, but we have other subdivisions that look as bad," said Reiter.
