The Clarence Town Board met on Wednesday, discussing several town topics.
The supervisor’s report began with an announcement of the approval of Kittinger Furniture Co.’s move to the Town of Clarence. He also thanked the board, planning board and the employees and residents of Clarence for helping push this project through to approval.
Supervisor David Hartzell continued with setting a bid date Tuesday March for a 2013 front end wheel loaders for the highway departments. He also moved to set a public hearing to consider the renewal of the hydrant rental contract with Lancaster for another five years. Other subjects on the supervisor’s report were to approve two special events in the town.
Councilman Kolber, as he mentioned at the last town board meeting, also brought up the town’s brush pickup and his intentions on improving the system that is currently in place.
Another item on Wednesday’s agenda was the Spaulding Lake Homeowner’s Association’s request for the formation of a town sewer district to service the 265 households in the Spaulding Lake community.
“We have been operating there, as you know, with a private sanitation system for over 20 years,” said President of the Spaulding Lake Homeowner’s Association Paul Cambria as he addressed the board. “We have been upgrading it over the years and we’re currently in the middle of a repair and upgrade. The opportunity has now presented itself to establish a sewer district and establish a sewer line, which would service our community.”
This item was sent to the planning board for a comprehensive review.
Alex Peter requested a public hearing for his business, Kraftmaschine, to be considered for a temporary conditional permit for automotive service operation at 9265 Main Street. The board set a public hearing time for 7:50 p.m. Wednesday, March 27.
A request also came from Clarence resident Jeff VanMarter for a preliminary concept review of a proposed one-lot open development to construct an additional home on the property, which his existing home is on, 10425 Keller Road. The board showed concern for VanMarter’s plan for the driveway layout and sent the item to the planning board.
A special exception use permit was requested by Douglas Klotzbach for an architectural approval for a third commercial building to be constructed in Victoria Park. This item, with other previous items on the agenda, was also sent to the planning board to be discussed.
A public hearing also took place during the meeting for the annual master plan review, giving residents the opportunity to bring any possible changes to the plan to the attention of the board.
