Bovina dedicates new town highway garage

Approximately 50 guests turned out late Thursday afternoon as Town of Bovina officials held a ribbon cutting ceremony to officially open their new highway garage. The new garage was built on the Main Street location of the town’s former garage that had all but fallen down prior to being demolished in the early summer.
The $400,000 project is being paid for by a combination of bond financing and money from the town’s Good Neighbor fund, money provided to the town by New York City as part of the Watershed Agreement.
Present for the ribbon cutting were members of the Bovina Town Board, town supervisors including Len Utter from Middletown, Marty Donnelly from Andes, Mike Triolo from Stamford and Harpersfield’s Jim Eisel, chairman of the county’s board of supervisors.
Bovina Town Councilman Chuck McIntosh presented Bovina Supervisor Tina Mole with a plaque noting her leadership and commitment to the building project. Supervisor Mole thanked a number of people for their help including the town’s building committee, highway superintendent Bob Burgin and Wayne Reynolds of the Delaware County Department of Public Works.
