A Better Normality Returns To Pioneer

FLAGPOLE FOLLOWS SOON

A Better Normality

Returns To Pioneer

After $1.2 million worth of digging, water- and sewer-line replacement and roadway reconstruction, the final bucket-load of asphalt was put in place shortly after 2 p.m. today by a crew from G. DiVincentis & Son, the Binghamton contractor that has been rebuilding Cooperstown’s Pioneer Street since the day after Labor Day Weekend. From left are Ed Fox, South Otselic, Lenus Beaulieu, Harpursville, Joe LaClair, Port Crane,  and Dave Kotarski, Binghamton. In rear, Carmen DiLoreto, Binghamton, directs traffic. Dennis Bozzi, Binghamton, was driving the backhoe and Mike Manderville, Harpursville, was supervising. A new flagpole will be erected later this week at Pioneer and Main to replace the one taken down during the reconstruction.  The crew will be back in the spring for final paving of the street and  to install new sidewalks.   (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)

    Didn’t they just replace the sidewalks? Why weren’t the sewer lines replaced before that? Great stewardship of taxpayers’ money.
