Officials in Rome, in central New York, have approved measures supporting municipal infrastructure projects and maintenance.
On May 28, the city’s Board of Estimate passed a measure allowing the city to contract with Barrett Paving and Materials in Liverpool, for a $1,969,842.21 cold milling and resurfacing project.
The day before in Common Council actions, a resolution that would have adopted the Erie Boulevard BOA study as an appendix to the 2004 City of Rome Comprehensive Plan, was tabled until a public hearing could be set on the matter.
The Erie Boulevard Brownfield Opportunity Area is a 575-acre area along the Erie Canal which aims to cleanup and reignite unused industrial space, the Rome Sentinel reported.
Also during the meeting, through a unanimous vote, council approved a bond resolution for $963,300 to pay for improvements to the $3.8 million Martin Street sewer project.
City Treasurer David Nolan said that the amount was not new spending, but the resolution was rather an authorization of spending for a leftover amount for the project, the Sentinel reported.
