Summer traffic problems

“We’ve met with the county, and they’re going to ask the state for the solutions to the dangerous intersection,” said Barbuti. “They have traffic counters out there now; they’ve done computer reports on the problem. They’re the engineers; they’re going to suggest the best way to do it. There have been two accidents in the last month and a fatal accident the month before that.”

In other news, the town board discussed problems with the Swan Lake Waste Water Treatment Facility. Al Picard, chief water and waste water treatment plant operator, reported that the collection system is plugged with rags and grease, which residents are sending down the drains. On July 28, 2013, a spill occurred near the old Fieldston Hotel due to a backup, and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation was notified.
