Meeting:  The Montour Falls village board met Monday, March 1 for one hour and 50 minutes.
Attendance:  Mayor Donna Kelley was the only board member not present.  There were three members of the public in the audience.
Action:  Justin James spoke to the board during public comment about doing a marathon through the area for a second year in a row.  The race would start at Watkins Glen International, go through Montour Falls along the Catharine Valley Trail, and back into Watkins Glen.  Fire Chief Tom Carson told the board he had no problems with the marathon coming through Montour Falls, because it was handled well last year.  The board approved the marathon coming through the village.
• The board approved Mayor  Kelley to sign an amendment to the union agreement to change the pay for Mike Hughey.  The amendment is in place until a highway superintendent is hired.
Discussion without action:  Carson told the board the Beaver Dams, Odessa, Watkins Glen, and Montour Falls fire departments would be using the carnival grounds for training.
• Clerk Suzanne Casselberry told the board about a house on Raymond Street that is having trouble being sold and obtaining a mortgage, because under the new zoning it is in a business zone.  The owners are trying to get a special use permit from the zoning board.  Casselberry said this is something the board should be aware of.
• Trustee Jim Howell said he would speak with Schuyler County highway Superintendent Greg Mathews about the work that needs to be done at the marina.
• There will be a Main Street Economic Development Workshop, April 21, at the Harbor Hotel.  It is open to village board members.
