Goshen to pave Taylor Street

Published 11:00 pm Wednesday, January 22, 2014

The Goshen Council made plans to pave Taylor Street in Tuesday night’s meeting.

“That’s the only unpaved street in Goshen,” said Goshen Mayor Jack Waller.

The work is slated for March. Waller said the road would cost about $15,000 to pave.

“It’s not a very big street,” he said. “We’re hoping for a grant, but we’ll probably have to do this ourselves.”

The Council also adopted a new handicap access policy for town hall. The policy revisions were a condition of a $240,000 grant the town received last year. The grant was used for water tank and water line improvements.

“We already had handicap access. This just put it down on paper,” Waller said.

The council received a request from a Goshen resident regarding the traffic on Jennifer and Zebella streets. The resident asked the council to consider placing speed bumps or “Slow Children Playing” signs on the roads. No action was taken.

In other business, the Council:

• approved the replacement of a fence located behind the Town Hall;

• approved an application from the State ABC Board to allow the sale of beer and wine at the Eagle’s Nest grocery store; and

• discussed repairing hydrants.

The Council meets on the third Tuesday of every month in Town Hall at 6 p.m.
