Business owners not happy with DOT project

The New York State Department of Transportation conducted the 1st of several parking suspensions as part of their safety improvement project in downtown Boonville. We spoke with several business owners this week about the parking suspension, who stated that it has hurt business. Some had stated that they were seeing clients, including handicapped clients, later in the day after construction had ended for the day. 1 owner stated that the DOT should have gotten the opinion of all of the business owners prior to the start of the project to get their input on what needed to be done. The DOT did send a letter to business owners & residents stating that they will do their best to keep everyone well informed regarding parking suspensions.
