Supervisors and the Canal Corporation are working out an acceptable compromise, instead of clearing more than 100 acres of trees along the Erie Canal. The date for the clearing has been pushed back to Feb. 12.

The plan to begin work on the Erie Canal was pushed back four more days on Wednesday.

Pittsford Town Supervisor Bill Smith posted to Facebook that he met with the supervisors of Perinton, Brighton, and the Canal Corporation. The leaders are working out an acceptable compromise, instead of clearing more than 100 acres of trees along the Erie Canal.

This winter, the plan is to remove dead trees and underbrush so inspectors can see any weaknesses or water seepage.

During that time, all parties hope an agreement will be reached.

Right now, no work will begin before Feb. 12.
