Extension granted for pavilion work

GOSHEN — Goshen officials on Monday approved giving a local contractor more time to repair a damaged pavilion.

During Monday’s Goshen Board of Public Works and Safety meeting, Zehr Construction personnel requested an extension until April 15 for the completion of the Roger’s Park Pavilion fire damage repair project.

Members of the board were told the cold weather has not allowed Zehr crews to complete the required painting and scheduling of the crane to install the pavilion’s cupola. Zehr personnel also asked for a change order for the extension of the siding to the underside of the roof and installation of the grout on the column caps for a cost of $2,134.

The board approved the requests and the total contract price for the project of $165,117.

In other business, the board opened several bids for city services. These included proposal of $14,025 for lawn mowing from Stiver’s Lawn Care of Syracuse; two bids for cold water meters including $31,824 from Hydro Meter Services of Pontiac, Mich., and $46,065 with M.E. Simpson Co. Inc. of Valparaiso; and bids for sidewalk and curb replacement, Yaw Construction of Goshen, $123,450, Niblock Excavating of Bristol, $128,837.40, Reith-Riley Construction of Goshen, $163,965, and J.L. Denlinger of Goshen, $98,950.

Standing water

The Board of Works also reviewed a situation involving standing water.

As a result of spring rains and other factors, a portion of Ideal Lawnmower Shop at 113 Steury Ave. has standing water on the north side of the building. A request has been made by the neighborhood association and City Council members for Goshen Engineering to look in the cause of the standing water.

The Board of Works previously approved a survey contract along Steury Avenue to allow for the design of stormwater improvements. On Monday, the board approved a request by Goshen Engineering to expand Brads-Ko’s survey to include 113 Steury Ave. as well as the properties north and south of the property. The board OK’d increasing the total contract with Brads-Ko to $8,710.

In other matters, the board approved the promotion of Patrolman Mario Mora to the rank of detective.

I think it’s an excellent idea that is way overdue
I think it’s a bad idea and would be restrictive for students and parents.
