SARDINIA — The Sardinia Town Board has approved a contract between the Erie County Department of Public Works and the 25 towns in Erie County, for snowplowing services.
Board members said that they understand that plowing and de-icing the town and county roads is in the best interest and safety of Sardinia’s residents.
The negotiated contract said that the majority of the county roads, within the towns, would be maintained, “according to the same snow and ice control methods used, on all town roads.”
The board unanimously passed a resolution that approved the collection of data and information, for a possible tax relief program. The town supervisor, town tax assessor, town attorney and town accountant have already collected and looked over the data, to request the proposed tax relief.
A letter, enclosing a survey and requesting citizens’ input by Aug. 1, was sent to local residents. A public hearing about this matter is scheduled for 6:15 p.m. on Aug 8. Taxpayers, property owners and other Sardinia residents may voice their opinions about the proposed amendment.
In other matters:
– Town Supervisor Mary Hannon said that she has reviewed the need for new, updated zoning books and town code books, for Sardinia. “The new books will make it easier for the board, in the future, when making decisions,” she said, adding that these items will also save the town money and help avoid confusion.
– The Memorial Volunteer Fire Company of Chaffee-Sardinia’s tool raffle fundraiser will be held on Sept 8.
– Susan Johnson, a representative of New York Sen. Patrick Gallivan’s, will attend the next meeting.
The board will next convene at 6:30 p.m. on Aug 8.
