Western officials postpone road closure vote

By WKTV News

WESTERN, N.Y. (WKTV) - The town board in Western has decided to table their decision on the possible closure of Cady Road. They plan on using the next month to get input from first responders in the area.

Last month, Western town residents and people who are somehow connected to Cady Road presented their cases to the town board, explaining why this road, that the board deems dangerous, should remain open. Monday night, the public was allowed to speak their mind again, but more questions were asked than opinions given. The town board says they still need some questions answered before voting on this controversial issue.

Town board supervisor, Robin Davis, says the board is really taking their time with this decision to ensure the publics safety and to make sure they make the right decision. "They will be checking with other fire departments about coverage for when and if there is a house built on that road... And any kind of emergency response would be and what we can work out with any support of that road from the upper section in the event that a house is there." Davis explained.

The next town board meeting will be held Thursday, July 12th, at 7pm at Western town hall.
