E. AURORA MEDICAL FACILITY ON SCHEDULE MERCY HOSPITAL CARE CENTER IS SET TO OPEN IN MARCH, OFFICIAL SAYS

The long-awaited Mercy Ambulatory Care Center on Olean Street, East Aurora, is scheduled to open in March, Mayor John Pagliaccio told the Village Board Monday night.

Work on the facility, which will serve the medical needs of the residents of the Aurora area, is progressing well, the mayor said.

The facility will provide radiology, ultrasonography, mammography, electrocardiograms, preadmission testing and outpatient diagnostic services for Mercy Hospital.

There will be no emergency-room service, and specialty physician care will be by appointment only, Pagliaccio said. Doctors will lease their office space in the facility, which is being built by Mercy Hospital.

The board also authorized seeking a state capital grant in preparation for an expansion program at the East Aurora Boys and Girls Club.

Trustee William Green noted that the East Aurora club serves more than 1,500 area youths, providing counseling, recreation, educational activity and other youth-related services. A fund-raising program is being planned for early 1991, he added.

The board approved a requested amendment to a development plan for property at Olean Road and South Street that was tabled at the last meeting. The trustees stipulated that the pavement-marking company, Precision Asphalt Maintenance, must comply with state building and fire codes, store all materials indoors and perform all work within the building.

Trustee Donald Meade told the board that the county has announced that the reconstruction of Center Street is scheduled to be completed in June 1991. If the weather cooperates, the storm culvert will be installed before winter, he said. Otherwise, work will be resumed in March.

In other business, the board:

Suspended yard waste-brush pickup from Dec. 17 through March 18, except for Christmas tree pickup and emergencies.

Reported $1,973,350 in bond anticipation notes will be awarded to Key Bank at the rate of 6.09 percent.

Authorized seeking bids for a hauling truck for the village recycling program.
