Hickories Park Entrance and Sewer Line Work Planned

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

Hickories Park in the town of Owego will close in less than four weeks so improvement projects can get underway.

Town supervisor Donald Castellucci says work is planned on the park entrance. A temporary entrance has been in use for over a year.

Speaking on WNBF Radio’s Binghamton Now program, Castellucci said bids for the new entrance came in nearly $100,000 lower than what had been projected.

The permanent bridge should be ready for use next spring.

A sewer system for park campsites also is to be installed. The town had considered adding the sewer lines several years ago but money for that project wasn’t available.

Castellucci said someone who “enjoys the park and wants to see it prosper” donated $100,000 to be used for the sewer system. That donor asked to remain anonymous.

The supervisor said the town expects to pay about $63,000 to cover the remainder of the cost associated with that project.

Castellucci said improvements to the park’s water lines also are planned, although that work won’t be done now because the town doesn’t have the needed funds.
