Workers were on Swan Street in Batavia today knocking away loose bricks from the facade of the old Wiard Plow factory office building. Property co-owner Todd Audsley said the goal was to remove loose bricks before high winds hit the area tonight.
Long-term, the owners are working on a restoration project for the building. The facade will eventually be restored to look as much like the original as possible.
There is a high-wind warning in place starting at midnight through 10 p.m., Saturday.
Winds of 35 to 40 mph are expected with gusts up to 70 mph.
