Members of the village board will begin looking into a process that would potentially bring grants to Lake Street.
The New York State Main Street Program is the source of funding and Village Trustee Laura Hackathorn will be working with Village Administrator Donald Witkowski in beginning this process.
The process will begin with a walking tour of Lake Street to assess what buildings are in need of assistance or repair. The next step is to see which parties are interested in the project moving forward and then a plan will be mapped out.
“The goal is to have great change in a small area,” said Hackathorn.
The gateways into the village were also a point of discussion on Monday evening. Members of the board discussed what they could do to enhance each gateway. The board will continue to work on these items.
There was also discussion among the board, led by Village Trustee Mark Colmerauer, regarding garbage totes for residents but those matters will be addressed at the next meeting.
Marc Shuttleworth, superintendent of public works, says the sewer project on Clark Street should be complete by the fall. Additional construction projects will continue once work on Clark Street is complete.
Also, pay rates for part-time recreational attendants and members of the Department of Public Works were also set at the meeting.
In other items, a report from Jeffrey C. Adrian, the town’s code enforcement officer, concludes that the dead tree in the back of the property poses a hazard and should be removed. The board ordered the removal of the tree at the property, which is located at 131 Lenora Drive. The next village board meeting is set for July 1 with the work session beginning at 5:30 p.m. and the regular meeting starting at 7 p.m.
