11-19-2020: Some residents still can not return to their homes.

11-18-2020: Yesterday, there was a machine working at the mouth of Muddy Creek. When I checked out what was done, I was surprised to see that instead of removing sand from the west side of the wall, the town dug a trench at the top of the wall near the parking lot.

Two problems:

  1. This will result even more sand being washed away from the beach.
  2. This will only lower Muddy Creek a few feet leaving several resident’s houses surrounded by water.

After Mother Nature’s winds subside, residents are left with man made flooding. It’s time to address this problem.

I wonder if the residents that had to evacuate their homes due to flooding would have liked an update or wanted to ask a question? If the concrete wall, which acts as a dam, were removed, Muddy Creek could return to lake level after a storm. When taking the pix (below), a resident told me he was told that the town could not dredge the creek because of the fish. I recommended he call the NYSDEC and ask if the town has the needed permits to do emergency work. (They do!)

Now our lakefront needs a huge cleanup after the November 15th storm and the town a day later approves a budget that leaves the highway department (and the police department) several employees short as compared to past budgets. Let’s now forget how busy the chipper crew will be!

Also, there’s a COVID-19 outbreak at the town hall. Another problem not addressed at last night’s meeting.

The 2021 budget creates a new full-time Human Resources (HR) position.

Just a guess, but maybe they should have hired a second HR person. Looking like Evans will have a few unhappy campers. HR may become the busiest office at the town hall!

Call or email the supervisor and ask her what’s going on in Evans. 549-5787 / supervisor@townofevans.org
