Statement from Village President Jeremiah Bush
When I went to vote in the primary election this afternoon I was bombarded with there had been many complaints about the lack of planning with the location of where the construction was occurring on the Village’s water main replacement project and the location of where the election was occurring. My response was, “It is what it is, it has to be done.” You will likely hear this response often and some weren’t happy with it today and there will likely be people not happy with it in the future. To further clarify, this water main project is a once in a generation project, huge in scope and monetarily, there was no planning for this primary election, we are going to make mistakes. We started where we felt there would be the least amount of roads torn up during the winter months so there wouldn’t be muddy and rutted roads from the snow all winter, thus Homer Rd as we were able to use land along the road to place the water main. Then onto the adjacent streets of Spring St. and W. Center St. our worst street. People asked why didn’t we take the day off from construction? Everyday we take off is one day longer this project takes, cost as a result could rise, and a Covid19 outbreak could occur shutting down our project. The work must go on as we are trying to complete this project as fast as possible to limit inconvenience and save on costs to our residents. Sorry there were inconvenienced individuals but in the long run look on the bright side we could have waited until Fall 2020 to complete this section of the project and we would be dealing with this inconvenience when we are electing our next president.
Village of Concord Residents –
The USDA Water Main Replacement project has begun.
During the project you may experience low water pressure, no water, water discoloration, etc.
