Town of Batavia Fire

This morning contractors working on the former Lowe's location, getting the remaining space ready for new retail stores, apparently forgot to turn the water off to the sprinkler system before deciding to disconnect a pipe. The pipe needed to be relocated to make room for a new entrance to the new store. Workers undid two bolts and whoosh! An explosion of water. Perhaps as much as 1,000 gallons spilled out before the water was shut off. The break caused the water flow alarm to go off resulting in a response from the Town of Batavia Fire Department. Volunteer firefighters grabbed squeegees and brooms and helped clear the water out from inside the building.

Town of Batavia firefighters took a break from their extrication training Monday night to show off the Harley-Davidson Fatboy that one lucky raffle ticket buyer could win July 27.

Tickets are $20 and are available for purchase at the fire hall on Lewiston Road or from a Town of Batavia volunteer.

Only about 600 of the 2,500 tickets remain.

The Harley raffle party will once again include a beer tent, music by 7th Heaven and BBQ from Alex's Place. The public is welcome to join the party. It's not necessary to buy a ticket to attend.

This year's Harley committee is Steve Coburn and John Mullen, co-chairs, and Stephen Kowalcyk and Bob Tripp.
