Bancroft’s new council agrees with the previous council’s assessment that Chemaushgon Road needs improving. They approved yesterday for work to begin next year on a section of the street from Station Street to the new section parallel to the Airport. They will also work on the hill that’s at the boundary of the Town. Town staff will now send out a request for proposals for the grind and pave work that will be done. The work is expected to get underway next year.
