Town of New Castle Administrator’s Report – 11/23/16

Jill Shapiro
Town Administrator, New Castle

Seasonal Parking Ban

Effective November 1, there are seasonal parking bans on New Castle streets. That means that no vehicles overnight between 1:00 am and 7:00 am until April 1. (New Castle Town Code 123-10.)

Take It or Leave it Shop

With the weather turning colder over the past couple of days, the volunteers have decided that they are closing for the season. They are going to be open on Saturday for give aways only. They will not accept any new goods. Bill Kuebler and the volunteers report that this was their best year ever. The fact that the shed is almost empty and through the kudos the shed gets from residents is a testament to how worthwhile this is. Bill Kuebler reports that he is working with Bedford to get a TIOLI up and running. They were very impressed with our setup. Stop by on Saturday and say goodbye until next spring!


Our 2014 paving contractor ELQ Industries, Inc. returned to New Castle today to correct defects that were discovered in a very small percentage of the work they did for us on Paulding Dr. and Seneca Rd. We are pleased that ELQ stood behind their original work and corrected the defective areas at no cost to the town. A shout out to Tom Costello, Bart Carey and Gerry Moerschell for pursuing this with the contractor and ensuring the quality control during today’s operation.
