The construction on Bank Street in Batavia will require a water main be shut down for a few hours this morning.
The affected area will be along Washington Avenue between State and Bank.
The city estimates the water will be off between 8:30 and 11 this morning.
When it is turned back on, the water may be discolored and may have air in the line. It will clear after a couple minutes of use.
More trouble at Batavia’s College Village Apartments.
This time, it’s unlawful fireworks.
Court appearance tickets have been issued to three 18-year-olds from Rochester for setting off fireworks in the College Village parking lot around 3am Sunday morning. Another 19-year-old from Syracuse was also charged.
Also linked to College Village was the arrest of three 20-year-olds: two of them for pot possession and one for trespassing.
The three were arrested last week but the incident has just been made public.
Tonight, Batavia Junior High and High School students and their families are invited to attend a second annual event at the high school called “Rachel’s Challenge.”
The "Challenge" is named for Rachel Scott, a young woman who died in the infamous Columbine school shootings in 1999. The program strives to promote peace in schools by suppressing bullying and violent behavior. The program is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at Batavia High School.

The disappearance of Chili teenager Britanee Drexel has been featured on a national cable t-v show.

Despite several intense searches, police have not been able to find a trace of Britanee. She went to Myrtle Beach on Spring Break with friends.
After a nasty argument with a newspaper reporter was caught on video, Republican gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino may be putting Mr. Tough Guy to the back burner.
Paladino says he plans to tone down his attacks on Democrat Andrew Cuomo and focus more on showing New Yorkers what he can do for the state.
However, Paladino is refusing to apologize for suggesting last week that Cuomo had an extramarital affair. The Republican has posted a new web video showing his kinder gentler side saying the campaign is not about affairs but rather it's about who has the plan to restore prosperity to the state.
