After nearly 15 years, the road work, water and sewer infrastructure for the Warwick Grove development in the Village of Warwick is complete. As the developer completes the final building phase, the Village Board of Trustees has agreed to release the over $600,000 Infrastructure and Entrance Road performance bond, replacing it with a $60,000 maintenance bond.
At the Village Board meeting on Mon., Nov. 21, the Board of Trustees discussed the time frame for the maintenance bond, specifically when it would go into effect and for how long. Technically, once the performance bond is released, the maintenance bond would begin and be in effect for one year. However, there is a lag time between the work being completed and the roads in Warwick Grove being officially dedicated to the Village of Warwick.
Trustee Eileen Patterson expressed her concern about the lag time which could, in effect, shorten the length of the maintenance bond. Warwick Grove developer Lou Marquet was in attendance at the Village Board meeting and reported that all work has been done to satisfy the performance bond and the Village engineering firm, Lehman and Getz, has signed off on the work. Department of Public Works Supervisor, Michael Moser agreed that the work has been completed satisfactorily. Marquet anticipates that the roads will be offered for dedication to the Village by mid-December.
The Village Board approved a motion to release the performance bond and to replace it with the maintenance bond, which will be in effect for 14 months. Marquet agreed to that provision as well.
