Rubble remains

T hough the machinery is in place and the starting date has well passed, cleanup has yet to take place on Main Street.

Nine months have passed since the Nov. 11 fire that destroyed two buildings, and their charred remains still sit behind a temporary fence.

On Tuesday, Attorney John Winn, who is representing one of the former buildings’ owners, said he was still waiting to hear from Edgeco Environmental, Inc., the company hired to do the work. He last spoke with them last week.

“They told me they were finishing another job, and they’d call me when they were heading up here. I haven’t heard from them since,” Winn said. Edgeco has been pushing their start date back week after week, despite strong efforts on the part of local officials and politicians to get the pile out of the village.

Mayor Brian LaRose said he’d heard the same news as Winn, but that he would give Edgeco officials a few more days to get started.

“If I haven’t heard from those folks by Wednesday then I’ll try to get in touch with them,” he said. “As of right now, that’s all I know.”

Repeated attempts to get in touch with either Paul Pinkans, Edgeco’s owner, or any other company officials were not returned as of Wednesday morning.
