ARLINGTON — May 1, 2020 is the projected starting date for the second phase of renovations to Main Street in Arlington, Village Council heard Monday.

Street repaving, along with curb and sidewallk work, will be undertaken in the southern section of Main Street.

Truck traffic will be re-directed from this area, according to village officials.

Separately, a councilman was “disappointed” with repairs made to the concrete at the community swimming pool.

Councilman Brian Essinger said Alvada Construction has offered the village a $4,000 payback for the project. Repairs cost $50,000.

“It was one of the poorest lines of communication,” Essinger said.

“They have our money. They did a poor job,” he said.

Separately, village officials noted that Dollar General has inquired into zoning issues related to bringing a store to Arlington.

No action was taken Monday.

In other business, council will ascertain if more action can be taken to force a former resident to clean up a North Main Street home damaged by fire two years ago.
