City approves sidewalk replacement schedule, renews garbage truck rental

FLUSHING — Flushing City Council has given its approval for sidewalk construction to continue on Saturdays in downtown Flushing.

Gross Construction, the project contractor, made a request to work on Saturdays because there is less traffic downtown on the weekends. The company also wanted the extra work day because it is shorthanded in regard to construction workers and wants to keep on schedule with the project timeline.

The council also approved the rental of a garbage truck from Patriot Truck Leasing for the city’s residential leaf collection. The rental period will be for seven weeks, costing the city no more than $9,000. — B.G.
