Lewiston Town Board members took actions Monday covering a number of projects and agreements at their brief work session.

Leading off, the board gave its approval to the 284 projects agreement sought by Highway Superintendent Mitch Zahno. The agreement appropriates $674,9990 in town funding designated for various highway work projects. Included is micro-pave work, $177,479; paving, $474,750; and general repairs, $23,100.

The measure covers funding for “permanent improvement (projects) for 2024,” Supervisor Steve Broderick said.

Detailing the work, Broderick said the Highway Department has scheduled micro paving on a number of streets in Lewiston. They include: Pearl Street, Griffin Street, Perry Court, Natalie Court, Scenic Drive, Florence Drive, Adams Circle, Watts Drive, North Kline Road, Wayside Drive, Colonial Drive North, Garlow Road (south of Route 31), Fort Grey Drive, Barton Drive, Kenneth Avenue. Crack-patching work is scheduled for David Lane, Jason Court, Stacy Drive, Perry Court, Sara Court, Lauren Court, Riverwalk Drive, Riverwalk Drive South, Wolf Run, Rivermist Court, Elm Street, Curtis Court and Curtis Court North.

“Basically, the whole profile and asphalt (work) will be (on) Langdon Road, Irving Drive, Spring Street, George Street, William Street, Colt Street, Riverdale Avenue, Old Lewiston Road, Robert Street, Country Club Trail; chip sealing will be done on Albright, Simmons and Langdon,” Broderick said.

The board went on to approve the 284 agreement without discussion.

Also approved was a project management development covering the Oak Run phase 5 subdivision on North Fifth Street. According to engineer Robert Lannon of GHD Consulting, the town’s actual approval of Oak Run was done “many years ago. This basically represents a 10-lot subdivision; 38 days of duration once the contract gets going. The bond and insurance has been submitted.”

The board approved a new cyber and computer systems online use policy. The measure covers the town’s computer systems and internet/online use activity, as well as a policy on remote access. Attorney Al Bax said the policy approvals were intended to address concerns by the town’s insurance carrier.

Wrapping up:

 •Board members approved the collective bargaining agreement between the town and Teamsters Local 264 covering clerical and administrative staff.

“We worked real hard on it; some of us became famous as a result of it,” Broderick said.

•The board approved a new MOA with the town and the Lewiston-Porter United Teachers Union covering school resource officers on the Creek Road campus.

•The board also approved the hire of Sam Ricotta as a part-time building inspector within the Fire Bureau. The hire takes effect May 20.
