They should have never filled it in. The village could have used it for their new sewer system they have to fix.
Of course, they did the right thing by filling it in. I am wondering if the Smiths will have a clear path to do the same thing for the rest of the Hydraulic which they own. It would be great if they would cooperate with adjacent landowners and offer to sell them the parcels that abutt their yards. Of course, at a reasonable and realistic price.

When the project was in the planning stages, I was told by the village DPW supervisor that the plan was to sell the newly filled in section(s) to the adjoining property owners. What a let down it was when I read in the paper that the areas would be landscaped & a trail would be constructed.

I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that the project was completed with grant money. Perhaps there was a clause in the grant approval that prohibited the sale to anyone for a certain period of time?

You may be correct. The grant money was given to the municipality for the good of the residents of the municipality and not meant to be a revenue maker. Who knows? However, the Smiths own the rest of the hydraulic, they have no such restrictions.

I wonder what kind of effect these hydraulic blocks will have on the community. I can see that there is great debate over what will happen. I just hope for the best. Innovations and improvements are a good thing. http://www.summitmachineworks.com/parts.asp
