On March 15th, the Board of Supervisors appointed Deb DeRue to represent the Town of Williamson for a one-year term on the Wayne County Youth Board. Deb, an active scout leader for the past ten years, was previously Committee Chairperson for Cub Scout Pack #521. She is presently Committee Chairperson of Boy Scout Troop #90 and is the Activities & Civic Service Committee Chairperson for Seneca District, Seneca Waterways Council, Boy Scouts of America. Her family's passion for baseball also moved her to become a member of the Williamson Baseball Boosters, supporting the organization in its endeavor to strengthen and improve our community's youth baseball program.

The Water department will soon commence replacement of approximately 7,500 feet of 60-year old water main located on the south side of Lake Road. The project will begin at 3635 Lake Road and go west ending at the intersection of Lake Road and Stoney Lonesome Road. There will be some intermittent traffic flow interruptions so please be aware. The project should be completed by mid-summer.
