A Flood Watch remains in effect today through tomorrow across all of western NY. Flooding may occur on roadways that have poor drainage. Ice flows may jam at bridges and pipes causing water to back up. When you encounter a roadway covered with water, stay safe; don’t enter it; and always remain mindful of areas prone to flooding. In addition to the Flood Watch there is also a Winter Weather Advisory for Orleans and Niagara Counties from 5pm today through 9am tomorrow morning. Travel in those two counties may become difficult due to the combination of icy and snow covered roads. Snow will reduce visibility tonight and taper off early tomorrow morning but still could impact the morning commute.

The Batavia City Council will continue to think about how best to tackle snow plowing and snow removal concerns that have come up during this particularly snowy winter. Last Monday evening, they spent about 20 minutes discussing the issues that have come up, including plowed snow ending up in the streets or piled 4 feet or higher on sidewalks, making it especially challenging for some homeowners to keep sidewalks clear. One possible solution discussed was to distribute information to some residents about property owners’ responsibilities specific to clearing snow after a storm.

The Genesee County Legislature wants to honor the sacrifice of veterans who take up the mantle of Honor Guard at the Western NY National Cemetery in Corfu by providing them uniforms to wear while they go about their duties. The legislature agreed to a resolution to spend up to 8000 dollars to make sure that the Honor Guard had proper uniforms. The uniforms would belong to the members of the Guard but would be required to be surrendered if they left the Honor Guard. The WNY National Cemetery Honor Guard consists of 32 members, all volunteers, who serve their fallen military member’s families at the burial grounds. The final vote on the uniforms is next Wednesday.

James says tracking someone without their consent is a felony and that everyone should keep a close eye on their belongings.
