Photos: Workers remove loose bricks from facade of building on Swan Street

By Howard B. Owens

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.

I agree...I have called the city on this..It has been in that shape for over a year..bricks are constantly falling off....Were is code enforcement....They should have the side walk roped off..
