    A revised policy for the city’s 50/50 sidewalk replacement program was distributed by Mayor Ted Denton to the Rochester Board of Public Works and Safety on Thursday.

    Denton asked board members Rick Figlio and John Little to review the policy prior to the board’s next meeting on Aug. 15. Despite earlier consideration, Denton’s proposal does not restrict businesses from applying for the cost-sharing program. However, if approved, it would establish a cap on the amount of funds the city will contribute per project.

    Dan and his wife Sheila, daughter of Sue and Randy Spaulding, also of Rochester, recently touched down here in a Sovietera trainer airplane known as a Yakovlev Yak-52.
