Town delays helipad construction

CAROGA-Officials are waiting on state regulations before moving forward with the construction of an emergency landing pad for helicopters.

According to Caroga Town Supervisor Ralph Ottuso, the town is still waiting on state regulations governing helipads before it moves forward with plans to construct one across the street from the Caroga Town Municipal Building on Route 10.

“We are always waiting on the state,” Ottuso said.

Ottuso said the town’s highway department would handle the construction.
