A job well-done again Street paving completed under Davidson supervision Last week, Glenville receiv- ed a much-needed facelift as Black Rock Contractors, Inc. of Clarksburg paved city streets and private drives with approximately 583.80 tons of asphalt. According to Municipal Judge Delbert Davidson, overseer of the pro- ject, the eleven-man crew was "the most experienced he has worked with." In a July 2 meeting of city council, Davidson was ap- pointed overseer of the paving project with a budget of $20,000 and a $1,500 cost over- run. Following several telephone conversations bet- ween Mayor Phyllis M. Starkey and council members, the $1,500 over-run was increased to $3,000 when it was deter- mined that the lower section of Court Street needed paving. With the supplement of $1,500 added $5,396.50 collected from private drive owners, the total funds available for street paving was $28,396.50. After carefully measuring and calculating the tonnage for the streets, the order for blacktop was placed at 5:00 a.m. of each day of paving. Often the employees worked a 12-hour day in order to get a street completed. At a cost of $48.40 per ton, the total cost of the project amounted to $28,255.92. With a certain degree of pride, Davidson noted that $140.08 was left from the budgeted amount. Under the supervision of Foreman Manuel Gizzi, the crew from Black Rock had as many as sixteen years of ex- perience with the youngest on the crew having 3 years. They worked along with Chief Ice and the police department as well as the street department crew, supervised by Paul Gillespie. In comments, Davidson stated, "1 would like to thank, personally, Manuel Gizzi for the professional job done and also thank the public, Chief Ice, Officers Moss and Sprouse and Paul Gillespie and his crew for their coopera- tion." Beaming, Davidson further continued by saying he had "lost 6 Ibs. in two days and has now supervised 142 truckloads of asphalt," which included his tenure as mayor. m Upper center is a downhill look of paving on Court Street; left, a child's toy is evidence that he has been hard at work too; while, above, Black Rock employees begin final roll- ing stages of paving with Delbert Davideon, extreme left, looking on.
