An organizational meeting for the Boonville Farmers' Market will be held Thursday. Organizers will hold the meeting at 7 p.m. at the Exhibit Hall at the Oneida County Fair Grounds. The Market will start its 4th year on June 20th in a new location. After previously being held along the canal behind the Nice 'n' Easy, the Farmers Market will now be held at the Fairgrounds. The organizational meeting will give vendors the opportunity to see the new site location as well as announce special Market events that will be held during the season and to welcome new vendors to the Market. The meeting is open to the public. Previous vendors as well as anyone who is interested in becoming a vendor should plan to attend.
Initial work on the Lewis County General Hospital Dialysis Project will begin this week. Hospital officials have awarded contracts to construct an addition to the Medical Arts Building that will accommodate an eight station outpatient clinic, with a full basement, and include a new entrance into the main lobby area. Approximately 1000 square feet of adjoining space in the Medical Arts Building will also be renovated and included in the Dialysis Suite. The project's general contractor and a crew from National Grid are scheduled to start work on the project today with the work site to be secured in a temporary fenced enclosure to secure the site and start work on installing underground storm drainage infrastructure. Pedestrian traffic will be barricaded from the work zone throughout the duration of the project & will result in the loss of a few handicap parking spots. Handicap parking will remain available in the main entrance and on the number three road side just outside the Children's Clinic/Rehab entrance. In addition, the capability to drive across campus from NYS Route #26 to the Number 3 Road will be periodically interrupted when excavations are underway. The construction goals are to have the new addition weathered in by October, with interior finish work and installation of dialysis equipment planned to be completed by February. The final operating and construction acceptance approvals are expected to allow opening in the March – April time frame of 2014.

The Town of Lowville is working on a law that would ban commercial manure digesters. The move comes after a Florida company wanted to build a plant last year that would convert manure and food waste into methane gas. That project was rejected on a zoning issue and the town council has expressed concern over large, commercial digesters coming into the area. The proposed new law would allow manure digesters on farms, as long as they do not accept outside waste. The town council is expected to pass the law next month.
