Hamburg village taps recreation supervisor

Hamburg Village Board members appointed a new recreation supervisor Monday night.

Joshua Haeick will start his new job June 23, after the current head of the Recreation Department, William Nye, retires.

Nye has worked for the department about 30 years, said Mayor Thomas Moses, who served as recreation supervisor before becoming mayor.

"He was my assistant quite a few years," he said of Nye. "He's done a great job. He'll be missed."

Haeick currently serves as recreation leader. His salary will be $56,000 and will increase to $58,500 if he completes a satisfactory probationary period. After successful performance evaluations, he would receive $61,000 next June and $63,500 in 2014.

Board members Monday night hired Nussbaumer and Clarke Inc. to design and carry out the installation of new water lines along Woodview Court and Center Street cul-de-sacs.

The village will use $100,000 in federal community development block grant funding to replace about 1,200 linear feet of old four-inch lines with new eight-inch lines and valves.

Village Administrator Donald Witkowski said Nussbaumer and Clarke had done preliminary engineering on the project, and will do the remaining design and other work for $11,000.
