Vestal Looks To Fix Town's Infrastructure

March 12, 2012 Updated Nov 25, 2013 at 2:21 PM EDT

Six months after the flood ravaged towns and cities across the Twin Tiers, the Town of Vestal is looking to start several projects to fix its infrastructure.

Monday, Town of Vestal Engineer Gary Campo talked to Vestal leaders about building a flood wall around the town hall building.

Campo also suggested buying a new generator for the town hall in order to keep the central town building running during any future natural disaster.

He says he hopes FEMA will reimburse the town. If not, he says, the town will have to find the money for the project in the budget.

Also, Town of Vestal Parks Superintendent Jim Bukowski is asking the town to look into hiring contractors to complete work at two Vestal parks.

Last fall's water destroyed the athletic fields at Harold Moore Park and Vestal Center Park.

He estimates this would cost the town about $80,000 dollars.

Bukowski and his crew have worked to bring most of the parks back to pre-flood conditions

He says he hopes the parks projects will be completed by April.
