Bath Mayor: Sidewalk Work Is Underway!
Appearing this morning on WVIN, Bath Village Mayor Michael Sweet said the sidewalk project is underway.  "If you requested new sidewalks prior to last year, you will be getting them this year, at no cost to the property owner" Sweet said.  "Next year the village board will work with code and zoning to identify the worst sidewalks in the village and start replacing them." 

 

The Bath Village mayor also says, the village will be suspending two hour parking on May 23rd on Liberty Street, because May 23rd is Bath Town Assessment Grievance Day.   "The village is waiving the two hour parking requirements that day," Sweet told Dave Taylor Smith on WVIN this morning.  "If it goes to two days (grievance meetings) then we'll go to, two days," Sweet told Dave today on WVIN.

NYC Mayor Caves, After Officials Said No, To Migrants Plan

Pressure came in, from Rockland County and the southern tier, against the Mayor of New York City.  Yesterday, Chemung County Executive Chris Moss declared a local state of emergency, saying Chemung County was not capable of taking in ANY migrants from New York City, and he’s put out an order saying that no hotels or motels can take the migrants in, or they’d face, being fined up to $2,000 a day per migrant.  Bath Village Mayor Michael Sweet announced that he was not going to allow any migrants coming in from New York City either.   Republican Assemblyman Phil Palmesano said, Mayor Adams was wrong, because the mayor of New York City was given a billion dollars of state funding recently as part of the state budget, to deal with migrants coming up from Texas.
