Montour reconsiders parking ban

MONTOUR FALLS—The Montour Falls village board scheduled a public hearing for the Jan. 4, 2010 meeting, to change parking.  The spaces are on Montour Street and on the west side of Genesee Street, between North Main and Steuben Streets.
The board originally talked about both changes at the Nov. 2 village board meeting.  Trustee Phil Gillemot said after thinking about Bruce Nelson’s request to have a handicapped parking spot on Montour Street, he suggested moving parking from the east side to the west side of the street.  Nelson wanted a handicapped parking spot put in near where the ramp starts on that side of the Montour House.  However, parking for MontourStreet is on the opposite side of the road.  Gillemot said this way, the handicapped spot would be on the same side as the Montour House.  He added after talking to Mayor Donna Kelley, she agreed it was a good idea.
Gillemot brought up returning the parking spots to part of North Genesee Street at the Nov. 2 meeting.  He explained that Fire Chief Tom Carson said that stretch of road turned out to be wider there than farther south on Genesee Street, and could fit a fire truck turning onto the street.  Trustee Sharon Wiedemer asked if allowing parking there would disrupt visibility of the stop sign that will eventually go up at Main and Genesee Streets.
In other business:
• Trustee Phil Smith said that the Water Certification Course at Morrisville Lance VanAlstine went to was canceled, after he actually arrived.  The board approved sending VanAlstine to the same course being offered at Corning Community College.  The only difference between the courses is that the Corning one lasts longer.
• The board approved putting up a Christmas tree in the She-Que-Ga Falls park this holiday season.
• The board had some questions about the fire department spending $594 on landscaping.  Trustee Phil Smith said the board can approve it now and talk to the fire department about this sort of expense in the future.  Clerk Suzanne Casselberry said the fire department does this regularly, though not necessarily annually.
Upcoming meetings:  The next regular meeting will be Tuesday, Dec. 8 at 7 p.m.  The Monday, Dec. 21 meeting was also canceled.
