We are well into another year. Winter will be moving off and spring is around the corner. Hopefully the COVID situation continues to improve and we can get back to a more normal situation.

The Hillcrest St. Patrick’s Day parade is back this year better than ever. It will be held on Sunday March 6th, starting at the Hillcrest American Legion and proceeding down Chenango Street to Nowlan Road, ending at My Uncle’s Place on the East Service Road.

We have a few projects that should be completed this year. The Path of Life Culvert/Bridge will be replaced to allow access once again from Ballyhack Rd. The highway department has been diligent in keeping the POL road as safe as possible this winter.

The Hillcrest Water District will be completing the design of a new 750,000 gallon water storage tank. We hope to go out to bid on this project this spring. Date of construction will depend on the availability of manpower and materials.

The NYS DOT will begin construction of the new bridge over the Chenango River from Route 79. It will replace the old steel bridge that is there now. It will be about 1600 feet north of the existing bridge going from Fenton into Chenango County connecting to Route 12. We should see visible activity in April or May.

We once again will be having our annual clean-up day and will be collecting lawn debris on a weekly basis. The dates are being set, so look for the newsletter in April to give you details.

Other highway and drainage improvements are being discussed and you should see the plans in the newsletter as well.

The Town has a limited number of COVID home test kits available for town residents. If you need one contact the Town Clerk’s office at 607-648-4800 to arrange to pick one up.

As we enter spring many of you will want to start projects to improve your homes. Remember to discuss your plans with the building inspector to see if permits are needed and to be sure you will meet the building code. He is here to give you help and guidance. Give him a call.

Hoping the rest of your winter is safe and looking forward to the renewal that spring always brings.
