Portland Street project completed

Staff Writer

The Portland Street replacement project has been completed and two Madison-Jefferson fire trucks have been returned to the fire department garage. This was the news Mayor Rob Leonard shared with Oak Hill Village Council during the Tuesday, Nov. 28 meeting.

The $46,000 project, with both the village and fire department financially contributing, was designed to place a heavy pavement on the street, thus better allowing fire trucks housed there to get out of the station. There were cuts made in the street to avoid potholes and sewer clean-up to ensure better water drainage.

This was not the only paving project the mayor spoke about, as he said crews from Allard Paving in South Webster have done a good job paving many village streets. Mayor Leonard is also wanting to fix several potholes in town and plans to purchase some hot mix before the plants close for the winter season. The crews still have some work to do and the project will be completed soon.

In other news from the meeting, Mayor Leonard explained the village has been having some trouble with the garbage trucks and crews running late at times. He is asking village residents for their patience in this matter.

During his report, Police Chief Reid Arbogast reported it was a quiet Thanksgiving weekend in the village.

The next meeting of the Oak Hill Village Council will be held Tuesday, Dec. 12 at 7 p.m.
