LITTLE VALLEY – With just over $1 million proposed to go into a budget account, Cattaraugus County public works crews may be able to cover more area under a milling and paving plan.

Under previous plans, the milling and paving would be done to complete full roadways that were in need. The new plan would fix problems in more areas throughout the county, to the tune of $1,005,000.

“We can take 500-foot to 1,000-foot sections of roads that need to be fixed and mill and repair them,” County Senior Engineer Mark Burr told members of the Public Works Committee on Wednesday night. Crews in the Public Works Department will recanvass the county to come up with a list of areas that need some spot work, Burr and Public Works Commissioner Joseph Pillittere said.

The distance of roads to be worked on will not be known until supervisors are able “to get a list of road sections that would meet the criteria for this type of road maintenance activity,” he said.
