Cruisin’ Into Waterville
The ninth annual Cruise In to Waterville featured food, fun and a fairly good weather day. Waterville teacher Kate Hobaica kept her smile even after she was dunked a couple of times in the Waterville Teachers Association dunking booth, while the day kicked off with the Mary Cleary Memorial Run/Walk to raise money for the American Cancer Society. The classic car show drew in a number of people to see the cars and trucks at Harding Nursing Home, while vendors such as Zach Lewis and Colin Kelsey, who sold local photographs, filled the Village Park and much of Main Street. Music throughout the village provided a pleasant backdrop as people walked up and down sampling food and seeing what was for sale. More photos, Page 3

Board Discusses County Plowing
At the Augusta Town Board meeting in August, Oneida County Legislator Colin Idzi asked the board to reconsider the county’s snowplow request. Augusta has declined to plow county roads within the town in exchange for reimbursement. Idzi said the town has less than 20 miles of county roads in which a lot of the area is connected to town roads where the town plows are already out. Councilman Mark Stolarczyk said the two concerns he has with the contract are hourly rates and the conditions of the county roads. The board approved a revised Records Confidentiality agreement for new hires. A proposal for new fees for building permits was reviewed. No decision on changing the fees was made. Highway Department Superintendent Phil Eaton asked the board to sign the Roadside Ditching agreement with Oneida County. After lengthy discussion, it was agreed to find out from Eaton, who was not at the meeting, the status of work on town roads before an agreement is signed and time.

No Decision Yet On Apartment Complex

Nine people attended last week’s Waterville Village Planning Board meeting to hear discussion about a proposed apartment complex on Putnam Street. Planning Board chairman Dave O’Brien said the board cannot make a decision on changing the zoning for the project as all the paperwork has not been received. Developer Dave Sullivan is waiting for the environmental review for his plans for the former Waterville Knitting Mill site. O’Brien said the board is also waiting for some property tax information, such as how much revenue the project will generate. It is uncertain when the environmental review will be done, but O’Brien said a Planning Board meeting scheduled for this week would be just for members to review what they have and not include any input from the public. Sullivan, who attended last week’s Planning Board meeting, has plans to purchase the village property on the corner of Putnam and Conger. Phase 1 is a two-apartment building, while Phases 2 and 3 would be buildings of four units each. Because the property is zoned industrial, he is requesting a zoning variance to allow for planned development. Once all the information is received by the Planning Board, O’Brien said the board has 45 days to decide if everything is in order. For the Complete Article, Click Here to Subscribe!
