"It's a good thing people come together with ideas and you go forward," says Ron Nesbitt, Webster supervisor. "We'll have a couple more meetings. The elephant in the room is where the money's coming from."

"Look the president keeps talking about a large infrastructure bill, right?" Dave Seeley, Irondequoit supervisor. "So if that's coming up next year, wouldn't we want to have something in mind where we've studied, where we've done the engineering, to have ready?"

Seeley said this project is public and stakeholder driven. They plan to keep talking and eventually act when the money's there.
