Super Woman Wing Watcher
That face looking out on the right wing of the snowplow is Supervisor Crane. Laurie Crane wanted to experience what our snowplow drivers experience in a snow storm. Highway Superintendent Richard Reyn invited her to accompany him for a 30 mile drive clearing snow during the storm this past week. The truck with the extended right wing blade is new and better equips our Highway Department to deal with snow accumulation and persistent drifting.

Proposed Port Bay Sanitary Sewer Project
The MRB (Engineering) Group with Wayne County Water and Sewer Authority addressed the Town Boards of Huron and Wolcott and the public, in an informal informational meeting Wednesday, May 22, 2013, at the Huron Town Hall. For those who may not remember, a "Four Bay Sewer Study" was completed in 2007, outlining a long range plan for sanitary sewers around the four Wayne County bays on Lake Ontario. The construction of public sewers around Port Bay is an integral component of that long range plan. Wayne County Water and Sewer Authority is currently involved in a project with the Village of Wolcott, connecting a pumping station at the Village waste water treatment facility to the facility in Red Creek, in preparation for increased volume. The details of this presentation can be viewed by clicking on "Port Bay Sewer Project" in the home page menu.
This is a proposed project which would involve those same properties included in Water District No. 7. Huron Residents owning property on West Port Bay Road and areas around Port Bay will be receiving an information letter from the Town with an informal survey - "In Favor" or "Not in Favor" of the project.
