Sherman looks to future road projects

SHERMAN — The Town Board reviewed the status of the Abbott Drive rebuild project and looked ahead to possible future road improvements at their Dec. 5 monthly meeting, .

The board discussed making a prepayment on the loan the town took out for the Abbott Drive project. Board members acknowledged that making a prepayment now would save some interest, so a payment of $377,817 was unanimously approved.

Supervisor Kris Klein said he and Supervisor James Fahney (who was absent from that night’s meeting) had discussed which town roads should next be repaired.

Items Klein mentioned were:

• Repair or replacement of culverts on Indian Mound Road. Klein considers that to be the next road to be “overlaid or whatever we need to do with it, to get that one back up” to where it should be.

• Determine what needs to be done on Indian Mound Road and work up an estimate of costs. Klein said he’d work during the winter to get numbers for this.

• Chip sealing on Lynn Road north of Abbott Drive, possibly for a mile or possibly all the way to Indian Mound Road.

Klein told the board about a company that installs culverts of a size and quality that meet all the requirements of certain small bridges.

Company representatives met with Klein and Town Chairman William Goehring at the eastern bridge on Creek Road. The reps took photos and gathered other data. Klein later received a report saying it should be possible to replace the bridge with one of their culverts.

Klein said, “This could be a possible option which is, I’m guessing, half the cost [of repairing the bridge].”

Supervisor Patricia Horne asked if that option would still make the town eligible to receive funds through a bridge aid program. Goehring said that is being checked on.

The west bridge on Creek Road and the two bridges on Silver Creek-Cascade Road have reached a sufficiency rating low enough to qualify for state and federal aid. The east bridge on Creek Road is nearing that level.

The board unanimously approved appointments of poll workers on a non-partisan basis for 2018 and 2019: Chief Inspector Lorna Marquardt, Chief Inspector Marilyn Miller, poll workers Nancy Schroeter, Mardell Schulz, Patricia Green, Dawn Boehlke and Donna Borgwardt.

Building permits issued in the past month: Greg Bialzik, new home, electrical, plumbing, HVAC; Al Huiras, electrical.
