DeRuyter reduces State of Emergency to specific areas

Flooding in DeRuyter in June

Town of DeRuyter Supervisor Dan Degear lifted the town-wide State of Emergency Wednesday evening. The declatation was

first issued July 1

during flash flooding.

In a news release, Degar indicated specific areas of the Town will remain in a State of Emergency.

According to Degar, the DeRuyter Lake will remain under a State of Emergency due to high water levels. A no wake order remains in effect for the lake.

Town roadways still under a State of Emergency due to unsafe travel conditions are: Arnold Road, Carey Road, Chapman Road, Fairbanks Road, Old Route 13 (not State Route 13), and Richmond Road. Degar says the roads are closed to general traffic; however, local traffic is permitted.

"Road conditions are vastly improved thanks to the dedication of state, county, and local crews," said Degear. "We are close to completion on repairing the dangerous areas and appreciate the public's patience."
