A deteriorating road bordering a park in Williamsville will be rebuilt thanks to remaining funds from a previous project, village officials said.
Rock Street, between Spring Street and Glen Avenue, forms the western boundary of Glen Park and is in poor condition, Mayor Brian J. Kulpa said. The Village Board awarded a contract for improvements to Millherst Construction for their low bid of $365,420.
"This will not only rebuild that road but will add a sidewalk adjacent to the street," Kulpa said.
The project is an extension of a larger $3.3 million initiative to re-create Spring Street – a back-alley byway off Main Street – into a vibrant village square, where people can gather for community events and celebrations. On Spring Street, $800,000 in federal funds was used to build rain gardens and a subsurface storm water filtration system.
The Village Board adopted a budget for the 2017-18 fiscal year. Trustees approved a $3.67 million budget for the new fiscal year that would reduce the general fund tax rate to $4.19, a drop of 21 cents per $1,000 from last year.
