ARKPORT — A Hornellsville councilman this week praised town highway workers, calling the results from the road regrading “beautiful.”

It is board member David Oakes’ responsibility to present the Hornellsville Highway Department report at the monthly meeting of the town council. The report is compiled by Jason Emo, the Highway Department superintendent.

On Tuesday night, Oakes read the first item on the June Highway Department’s completed activities list — “regraded Lain, Doorley and section of Webb roads, getting them ready for oil and stone.”

Oakes followed up with his own assessment of that project.

“I was up there too, and they have done a beautiful job,” Oakes said. “They do such a nice job of regrading these roads, stoning them, and compacting them."

“I went up to Lain Road and that was nice,” agreed Supervisor Dan Broughton.

Additionally, the department worked on the following tasks during June

- Fixed the ditch on Webb Road that had washed out because of heavy rain, and lined it with #6 stone

- Continued to mow roadsides

- Patched roads around town

- Fixed the ditch on Morton Road

- Prepared town trucks for oil and stone work

- Oil and stoned Lain, Doorley and a small section of Webb roads

- Helped the Town of Fremont with oil and stone work

- Put up a “School bus stop ahead” sign for Alfred-Almond Central School

- Graded, rolled and brined Fitzgerald Road

- Fixed a washed out ditch on Bald Hill Road

- Hauled a load of stone for the Village of North Hornell

In other business, Clerk Sharon Ames reported 103 new dog licenses were issued in June.

The board approved a budget modification, allowing $600 to be transferred from the contingency fund to support this weekend’s Arkport Summerfest. The town annually makes a contribution to Summerfest.

The board met in executive session following the regular meeting.
