Batavia business owners along Route 31 are turning to city officials for help cleaning up what they describe as their own a stretch of parking lot and alleys plagued by drug deals and more.
The businesses, already tested by COVID-19 and street construction, are seeking help in retaining customers for what they hope will be a busy few months for shoppers.
Ward 5 Alderman Abby Beck mentioned the need for a dumpster corral in the lot and joined other aldermen in thanking the business owners for bringing the issues to the city council.
Batavia Mayor Jeff Schielke stressed that the issues in that area have not gone unnoticed by the Batavia Police Department. He also said it`s time for the city to consider reworking the liquor ordinance and bring some into it.
Schielke said ownership questions regarding the parking lot and nearby alleys date back decades and need to be ironed out. Ward 3 Alderman Dan Chanzit suggested the possibility of a land swap to allow the city to take control of the lot.
