A Quick Update from the Office of the Mayor and Council
In the past few months, the village has had many things going on and we would like to update everyone that views our page on what has happened and what is coming up in the months ahead.
First off, we have unfortunately lost two long standing council members in Dave McCray and Jeff Davis, who were vital in various projects and decision-making situations over their tenures. However, with that being said we are also excited to announce the appointments of our two newest council members to fill those voids. One being a past council member in Park Welker and the other a new face to the village, Zach Schlimm.
In other news, the park behind Sarchione Ford our largest project over the course of the last year is coming to a close as we are finishing the last few projects up this month. With lots of hard work from council members, local businesses, and village workers, the park has turned out to be quite a nice place for the community. Some of the components of the new park are, 4 basketball hoops, a large baseball field, a volleyball court, new playground equipment, lights, cameras, a drinking fountain, a newly installed walking track, plenty of benches and tables, trash cans, and coming soon a pickleball court and canopies.
The village has also lost a few auxiliary police officers in the last few months due to other job obligations. In the meantime Chief Bath, council, and the Mayor have been able to interview and hire three new officers to fill their spots. Patrolman Stephano Jackson, Patrolman Donald Worthy, and Patrolman Randy Harrell.
Last but not least, an update on our summer paving projects. We are excited to let everyone know that our large paving project for this year will be the entire road of Roosevelt Avenue, including a short run of Shane Avenue Extension. Also, while speaking with the paving company we were able to include a few smaller projects which are West Street, a short run of E. Silver Street, and all of South Main Street that stemmed from a grant received by the county.
We ask that everyone please has patience for the paving projects, as there will be times parking may be slim, traffic may be flagged, and roads may temporarily be shut down.
In closing we would again like to thank all of sponsors over the last few months for their kindness and help through these projects, and also all the companies who have provided their services for us to keep upgrading the Village of Waynesburg.
Stay safe and best regards,
Douglas W. Welch
