SHERIDAN – Several highway projects were announced at Thursday’s regular meeting of the Sheridan Town Board.

Highway Superintendent Jeff Feinen said roads that are maintained with an oil and stone surface will be treated Monday. He said crews will be working on the resurfacing next week.

He said that brush has been cut along all town roads once already and will be maintained throughout the summer. He said crews have been patching roads throughout the summer.

The board unanimously agreed to send a letter to Chautauqua County requesting that Center Road, which is a county highway, be a priority. Supervisor Louis Delmonte said the road was heavily damaged during the reconstruction of the airport, which is located in the town.

Feinen announced that there will be an extensive brush-cutting project on Cook and Airport roads. He said the trimming and removal will be done by crews assigned to work at the airport.

Town Code Enforcement Officer James Crowell announced that there will be road survey crews for the entire length of Route 5 in the township. He said they are looking for erosion damage of the pavement caused by storms.

In other matters, Mary Langworthy of the Sheridan Historical Society said she is concerned with leaks in the former town hall, located on Route 20 and Center Road. She said that if the roof continues to leak, historical items in the building may be damaged.

The board agreed that someone would be assigned to look at the building and check for damage.

A special meeting was set for 7 p.m. July 28 to consider renewal of the town’s insurance policies.
