Ulysses Businessman Fixes Road Damage In NY

Grove town road fixed

“I’m not sure who exactly is legally responsible for the damage, but I’m glad we’ve made some progress with the repairs,” said Johnsen.

Doug Watson, co-owner of Choice Property Management in Ulysses, Pa., said he is responsible for the timber that was removed, but denies he had anything to do with hauling it or the damage.

“It was nothing egregious and I’m doing my best to repair it and to my best knowledge (Highway Superintendent Jesse Griffith) is satisfied,” said Watson Thursday.

Watson said he sold the logs to another logging outfit that was responsible for the extensive damage.

When asked for the name of the company, Watson said, “I guess I wouldn’t feel free telling you that ... I’ve worked on the problem. I’m doing the work in the township and that’s all there is to it.”

Watson said the unidentified logging company hauled two truck loads of timber after a truck driver was told by Griffith to stop because of a “miscommunication.”

Watson had the road repaired last weekend with a tractor and a piece of equipment. Johnsen said he is satisfied with the repairs. More...
