Thursday's springlike weather was an apt backdrop for the Fredonia Village Board to set the wheels in motion on the summer construction season.
Projects include $225,000 for street reconstruction, $400,000 for drainage work in the area of Newton and Cottage streets, and $100,000 for the reconstruction of the roof at the wastewater treatment plant in the Town of Dunkirk.
The board OK'd resolutions bonding the project costs over 10 years. By law, the village must wait 30 days to see if petitions are filed seeking a referendum on the borrowing.
If no petition is received, funding can be borrowed, consultants hired and bidding can get under way.
The village will borrow $100,000 over five years to finance a fourth project -- the construction of a pole barn at the Department of Public Works facility on Eagle Street.
The borrowing is not subject to referendum and the project can get under way immediately.
The board also hired Ray Burgun Trucking Co. of Brocton to demolish four buildings at the site and haul away the debris.
In other business, the board:
Changed time guidelines for some spaces in the parking lot next to Village Hall, which is used by the Police Department as well as employees and private citizens.
Aired a letter from the Town of Dunkirk, which determined that the proposed Lang's Landing subdivision would have no significant impact on the environment.
The site is next to the village's wastewater treatment plant. The board decided to refer the letter to its attorneys, Jaeckle, Fleischmann & Mugel of Buffalo.
