Montour approves sidewalk stamping

MONTOUR FALLS—The Montour Falls village board authorized paying $18,900 for the sidewalk stamping project on West Main Street, at the Monday, May 3 village board meeting.
Clerk Suzanne Casselberry said the money was already budgeted for. It’s broken down into $16,600 for eight cross walks and $2,300 for marking two parking spots in front of the falls. Trustee Jim Howell said this is just the first phase of the project.
He added, other decisions for the project now include what color to pick for the stamping: terracotta or red brick pattern. Howell added it is hoped that the work will be done by Memorial Day.
In other business: The board approved the 2010-11 budget. Casselberry said there was no tax levy increase over last year.
• The board heard complaints from the public concerning code enforcement officer Bud Kibbe. Tom Carson, fire chief, said he was there as a citizen. He added he was concerned with the lack of fairness in what issues Kibbe focuses on. Rose Smith said she was not happy with her experiences with Kibbe as she is working on converting 310 and 312 Main St. into a salon. She said they had only been painting the walls inside and the code enforcement officer left a note on the door telling them to stop, citing work without a permit for plumbing, electrical and construction. Smith added none of that was being done yet, just painting, and Kibbe apologized.
• A supplement to the State Environmental Quality Review (SEQR) for the Rural Urban Center project was approved. Howell said the plan has already been approved by the village planning board.
• The board was given information, to be included with tax bills, for review.
• The wellhead protection plan was also given to the board for review, to be brought up at the next meeting. Howell explained the plan was developed by Rural Water Association for the two village wells. He said a moratorium on transporting biosolids near the wells was established so a plan could be developed.
• Carson said the village was given written approval for 144 man hours of Camp Monterey assistance. He added some brush needs to be cut before hand, because the workers cannot use chainsaws.
• Casselberry told the board elected and appointed officials in the retirement fund will need to keep track of hours for 180 days, as part of a new mandate from the state.
• The board approved demolition of a pavilion at the marina.
• Trustee John King said he would come up with a proposal for changes he wants to see done to the village Web site.
The next regular board meeting will be Monday, May 17, at 7 p.m.
