Every year, the Village of Sloan is allocated financial assistance through the Consolidated Highway Improvement Program (CHIPs) by New York State. These funds were used last year for the Lovejoy Street reconstruction and can be used for any highway improvements that have a life span of at least 10 years.Any resident that has recently driven down Reiman Street is aware of the failing condition of this roadway. Throughout winter, we have repeatedly patched the potholes but cold patch is only a temporary fix. Based on the condition of Reiman Street, we have applied for a waiver of the 10-year limit, as Reiman was last paved in 2009. Should a waiver not be approved, the Village will be paving either Michael or Atlantic Street. We would also like to remind everyone that while mowing their lawns, to not blow the clippings into the street. During rain, the clippings wash into the storm drain and create blockages and potential backups. Instead, bag them and place inside your trash tote. If using the brown paper yard waste bags, please place next to your tote on trash day. During your spring yard cleanup, if you need to dispose of any old tires, for a few dollars each they can be recycled at Geiter-Done, located at 300 Greene Street in Lovejoy.
