Ruth and John DoddsThe 8/18/15 informational meeting began with Supervisor Baer explaining that the Town still does not have an agreement with the DOT regarding the Right-of-Way (ROW). This could potentially delay the project one year. The subsequent Town Board meeting resolved to move forward with the existing sidewalk plan, amended to reflect citizen comments. GPI reported that the DOT will inform the Town of their ROW decision before Labor Day. Sidewalk Project Update

On an unrelated note, that’s Ruth and John Dodds on their farm the other day. They joined the ranks of folks who have been interviewed for the RJHS Oral History Project.
