Montour now cancels their NASCAR event

MONTOUR FALLS—Trustee Bonnie Howell announced at the March 16 Montour Falls village board meeting that the Montour Falls NASCAR event committee was dismantled and the village will not hold a 2009 NASCAR weekend event.
She said it was because the Watkins Glen NASCAR weekend event is “the same day and almost the same time.”  The village board’s concerns about both villages having an event the same time has come up at several previous board meetings.  After finding out Watkins Glen was also having a NASCAR event, the Montour Falls board members were worried they would not be able to have enough vendors if both events were same day.
In other business:
• The board discussed holding an information meeting about both the proposed county water district and the need to update the old water system.  Howell said, “either way something’s got to happen.”  The board agreed there is a lot of misconceptions about water rates.  Mayor Donna Kelley said they should have a meeting sometime the week of April 13.
• The board approved the highway department’s summer hours for  four day work weeks.  Employees will work either Monday to Thursday or Tuesday to Friday.  Kelley said the summer hours were temporary.  The board also approved Michael Hughey, village foreman, to place an ad in the paper looking for summer help.  He said they have three people interested, but want to hire a total of four people.
• Lion’s International requested use of the Department of Public Works parking lot on Cook Street, April 18, for their Camp Badger walk for kids.  The village approved their request saying they had done it the past two years as well.
• Trustee Phil Gillemot will be attending a Main Street Economic Conference focusing on foreclosure and building abandonment.
• The board authorized a revised boat lift operator agreement.  It includes making the boat lift operator checking with the manager to see which boat owners have signed a winter storage agreement before those boats are stored.
• A public hearing was scheduled for the April 22 meeting about the Time Warner Contract.  The village got the new contract back from Time Warner for a ten year term.
• Kelley reported the attorneys are working on getting ownership of the library transferred from the village to the library board.  The village board extended the current agreement again until the transfer is complete.
• The board approved Hughey to put in a culvert pipe at the carnival grounds so to get rid of a small swamp that is there.  He said he already had the pipe and the gravel, but just needs to purchase the plastic catch.
• Kelley said some of the water that flows into the space between the village hall and the library has been successfully diverted to where the “water garden” is next to the hall.  She added they are only missing the plants that would be put in the garden.  Kelley said she would like for some of the specific plants needed to be donated.
• The board agreed sharing a code enforcement officer with the village of Odessa and the town of Montour was worth looking into.  Kelley said the other two municipalities were interested, but added at this point everything is preliminary and they do not know who would be the shared officer.
