Warren moves ahead with cul-de-sac plans

The Warren Town Council made light work of its agenda at its monthly meeting on Monday, June 10.

Ben Adams, of Commonwealth Engineering, addressed the council with updates regard-ing the Winterhaven project.

The project calls for a cul-de-sac to be built at the end of Winterhaven Drive in Langton Estates to create access for emergency vehicles.

Adams submitted a quote of $9,000 from the firm to handle the particulars of the project and said that the timeline complete the project was early summer, as bids would be se-cured and a contract awarded as soon as possible.

He also discussed the possibility of securing funding for immediate needs projects via a grant program that uses the wastewater/storm water master plan that the firm put together for the town as an application. Although the deadline has passed for this year, Adams stated that there was ample time for the town to meet the cutoff for the next calendar year.

In other business:

• Several residents of Hendricks Street submitted a vacation request for the unimproved alley. Town employee Lee Poulson noted that the town had meters and pipes that ran along the street. After discussion, the council tabled the request, as it had yet to be deter-mined if all the residents were in agreement with the vacation request. The matter will be reviewed at the next meeting.

• The council agreed to donate $500 to the Salamonie Summer Festival fireworks show. Usually a $250 donation, the council agreed to the increase because it had not donated last year. The festival committee also requested that the same streets be closed during the festival as last year.

• Poulson reported that the streets would be washed on July 2, prior to the Salamonie Summer Festival.

• Poulson also requested alternative days to spray for mosquitoes. The council gave per-mission for him to spray on any two days of the week, provided that there was enough time between the first and second spray.

The next meeting will be on July 8 at 6:30 p.m.
