Village road plan will go to vote next week
The Bayside Village Board will vote on a $1,335,065 spending plan for work on nine roads at a meeting Thursday, March 5.
Pelham Parkway would be the largest proposed project at $386,603, which would cover asphalt resurfacing plus curb and gutter and sidewalk.
Also in the top three proposed projects are $263,340 for unspecified work on Rexleigh Drive from Brown Deer to Fairy Chasm roads and $237,342 for Regent Road asphalt resurfacing and ditching.
Other areas include County Line Road, Baypoint Road, Ellsworth Lane from Iroquois Road to Santa Monica Boulevard, Tennyson Drive, Apple Blossom Lane from Jonathan Lane to Duchess Court and Port Court.
Fee would be charged for dead animal pickup
Bayside property owners might have to pay to dispose of large dead animals if they are discovered on weekends or holidays.
A proposed ordinance would require residents to have the animals, at least 40 pounds, removed 12 hours after discovery.
The Department of Public Works will continue to pick up the animals during the day Monday through Friday, but residents would have to pay $75 special pickup fee other times.
Village Hall could connect to water system
Bayside will go for bids to run a water line from Village Hall, 9075 N. Regent Road, about 500 feet to hook up to the We Energies water system that already serves part of the village.
The cost is estimated at $37,000, Joel Hawkins, director of Public Works, told trustees meeting as a committee of the whole Feb. 19.
Those near Village Hall might be able to hook up also, for a fee.
