>Project about to start to map infrastructure
MAYVILLE -- Chautauqua County is close to beginning the first phase of mapping the county's infrastructure.
The county is getting a $248,000 federal grant for the project, which will begin with mapping sewer and water lines.
Joseph Trusso, chairman of the County Legislature's Audit and Control Committee, said Thursday the panel members discussed how the mapping might help economic development.
Businesses considering locating in the county "want to see where the power lines are, where the railroads are, and we're going to be able to give them that. This is a great economic tool," he said.
Trusso said roads would be among the next items to be mapped. He hoped that effort would assist progress on a proposed upgrade of Route 62 between Warren, Pa., and Jamestown.
Officials of Warren County in Pennsylvania have already lined up money to start work on improvements to Route 62 from North Warren to the state line, Trusso said.
