I thought someone would have at least saved the sign before the demolition.

Demolition should be largely wrapped up today.
Kind of sad to see it go. I met my husband in the Wiss almost 18 years ago.
Unfortunately the DPW did not have the appropriate equipment to take it down, so the plan was that if it was not damaged beyond salvage when it fell off of the wall it would be kept by the village and declared surplus and put up for silent auction. As I was not able to be there at all today due to work obligations I am not sure what the end result of that plan was. I did notice it was no longer on the sidewalk when I came home today.
What a sad day for LeRoy. But hey, now they can put up a Rite Aid to match that hideous Walgreens. If they keep up the pace, the village should look like a strip mall within a few years. Or better yet, like Batavia.
Jennifer, yeah right!
Someone no doubt took the sign and is planning to keep it for themselves, or they could be contacting Pawn Stars.
It sure be nice when the Village puts up a little park here and I can sit and drink my McDonalds coffee ~ I just hope the bences face the right direction!
