Niagara Gazette — “I think everyone has been generally pleased since we brought the new contractor on board,” Dyster said. “I think the people who live there can see the difference on the ground level.”
Council Chairman Sam Fruscione is one of those people. He’s a DeVeaux resident.
He said that the recent progress has helped long-suffering residents who have been frustrated by limited access to their homes.
“It shows that things could have gone very quickly in the first place,” Fruscione said.
Since the new contractor signed on and the road project began moving forward again, Fruscione said he has seen many houses that have been on the market for a long time with “sold” signs in the front yard.
“We’ve seen a lot of progress,” he said. “The property values will begin to go up again.”The Gazette is counting down its top 10 stories of the year through New Year's Day.
