Setback to waterfront lighting project

Highlights from the Rotary Club meeting of Feb. 10

Let there be light? Maybe. Plans for the Rotary waterfront lighting project has hit a snag. The club would like to create a lightsource along the waterfront pathway, as currently there is no lighting along that area and the village doesn’t want work happening from the long weekend in May to the long weekend in October. The goal is to get all the groundwork done before theMay long weekend, but the grant money needed to make the project happen won’t be available until that weekend. The onlyother option would be to start work after Thanksgiving. However, the extent of construction isn’t known at this time, and won’tbe known until specs can be interpreted. The end goal is to have the project fully in place by May 2017.
