The CONTINUED ON PA(iB KOUIt HUNTLEY TEENER LEAGUE Sidewalks Repaired Several new .sections of sidewalk arc being constructed around our town to replace old walks, broken and worn by ago. The sidewalks being re[)aired at tho present time are located on Main SI. in front of Ihe United Church of Christ Congregational; on Woodstock St. in front of St. Mary's Catholic Church and further north going down the hill: on Myrtle St. near MiU SI. on Grove st. near Mill; and a section of Church st. near the Lutheran Chureh. Theso repairs are being done at the Village's expense. The mon¬ ey to maintain sidewalks comes from the money colkxjted for the General Fund. Each year the vil lage repairs the worst sections of sidewalks according to the amount of taxes they have collected. The money is allotted for those repairs on a footage basis, so much mon¬ ey for so many feet. Sidewalks are maintained by the city after they have been put in by private citizens in front of their own property. In some sec¬ tions of town, individual citizens have not constructed sidjbwalks. The Village will not be responsi¬ ble for constructing sidewalks for these people, but will only keep them in repair after they have been constructed. People are re¬ minded to be careful when walk¬ ing at night as there are baricades errected in these construction zones. Construction at St. Marys Church Pictured above is the sidewalk and step repairs in front of St. Marjr'a Catholic Church on Woodstock, St The Church is potting In the steps and the city is repairing the sidewalk.
