A suspected tire slasher is behind bars in Batavia.
City Police have arrested 37 year old Jason Freeman of Hutchins St. and charged him with criminal mischief for puncturing two tires on a car parked on Osterhout Ave.
Freeman was jailed in lieu of $2,500 bail.
Union Street in Batavia is now closed to all through traffic.
The closure is due to construction of water main replacement, paving and sidewalk installation.
Beginning today, Union Street between West Main and Richmond, and Richmond and Oak will be closed. The street will remain closed until Sept 13th.
Arrangements have been made for property owners to access their homes but other motorists are asked to find an alternate route.
There are only two days left to let the City Republican committee know if you are interested in being a Batavia City Council person at-large.
One of three at-large seats is being vacated by Adam Tabelski since his wife Rachel has been named assistant city manager.
Letters of interest in the at-large post must be emailed to GOP City Chairman David Saleh by this Saturday.
