Government Operations Committee to Review Road Preservation Options December 16

Wednesday, December 15, 2010
The Legislature's Government Operations Committee at its December 16 meeting will review and discuss how to preserve local roads from damage from temporary heavy use.

The meeting will take place Thursday, beginning at 9:30 a.m. at the Old Jail building (first floor conference room), 125 E. Court Street, Ithaca. Anyone interested in and wishing to learn more about the road preservation issue is invited to attend the meeting.

The committee will examine a proposed new local law that would regulate heavy commercial use of County highways, which last month was recommended for further review by the Facilities and Infrastructure Committee. Another proposal before the committee would urge the State Legislature to clarify environmental conservation law regarding municipal authorization to protect their roads from damage as a result of gas drilling operations.
