Town of Lockport to get security updates
The board approved a contract Monday with Sicoli Construction of Niagara Falls for $33,550. This bid came in lower than originally estimated.
According to Councilman Paul Siejak, these updates will include work to the existing doors and windows.
The board will also approve at its next work session on Feb. 20, a contract for façade improvements at Carpenters Union Hall on Dysinger Road.
The board will select between two alternatives and have three bids to choose from.
In other town news:
• Work may need to be done to a sewer pumping station in Lincoln Village. Town Engineer Robert Klavoon said the station has not had work done in 20 years and they need to “get it back to where it needs to be.” The station needs new pumps and a generator.
This project is estimated at $255,000. The money for this has not been budgeted, but the town could borrow or use a fund balance.
Flushing of sewer lines to check for leaks will also need to be complete in Lincoln Village and Carlisle Gardens.
Carlisle Garden would cost $41,000 to flush 8,000 feet of pipe, ranging in size from 8- to 18-inch pipes. Lincoln Village would cost $20,000 for 4,500 feet of pipe — 8- and 12-inches.
• During Wednesday’s board meeting a Department of Operations was created.
The Department of Operations would be responsible for the oversight, operation and maintenance of the town’s water, sewer and lighting districts. It would also have oversight, operation and maintenance of the town parks and town facilities, including buildings and lands, except for the highway garage.
The department will be headed by the town director of operations, who will have the authority to appoint and remove employees and will report to supervisor and the town board.
