Concord signs water agreement

CONCORD — The Springville village board approved the Intermunicipal Water Sales agreement between Concord and Springville, which was read at a Concord town board meeting on Jan. 2. The letter of contractual agreement stated the following: “The district has been formed pursuant to the provisions of Article 12-A of New York State Town Law. The village has an excessive water supply and is willing and desirous of allowing the town of Concord to extend water services, for the benefit and use of the district. The village also installed a master water meter on Cattaraugus Street at the termination of the municipal water line, for the purpose of metering the total amount of water used by the district.”

In regard to this agreement, Concord Town Supervisor Gary Eppolito said, “Prior to receiving any water from the village, the town shall adopt a local law or ordinance relating to the district, containing provisions, regarding cross-connections and detailed regulation of the use of the water system.” The town’s law will contain provisions similar to Chapter 45 of the Springville Village Code, regulating the use of water supply and system, within the village of Springville.

The conditions governed under this agreement specified that, “The village agrees that it will not make water service available directly to any individual or corporation for properties within the district, except under terms of the agreement or as permitted by New York state law.” Individual customers within the district will pay a water meter charge, equal to a charge assessed by the village, and the rate may be subject to change.

Jason Bond, of Springville, accepted a 5-year appointment for the Zoning Board of Appeals.

Councilman Clyde Drake was appointed to fill the seat of former board member William Snyder III. Snyder chose not to run for reelection.

The vacation schedule for town of Concord employees remains the same, but each department must maintain its own vacation schedule records. The “Vacation Days Accumulation” policy had taken effect on Jan. 1, 1999. In addition, the employee manual was adopted for the year 2014.

Highway Superintendent Dennis Dains was authorized to bid out for the cost of fuel.

Amy Schosek and Kelly Milbrand were appointed the position of court clerk of the town justice court; affirmation of the appointments was made at an organizational meeting, preceding the regular board meeting.

An authorization was accepted for town bookkeeper, Denise Ciszak to make yearly closing entries; a list of these entries will be received by the board after the March audit.

Other appointments made official by Eppolito included the following: assessor chairman, Dawn Martin; code enforcement officer, Roger Atkinson; bingo inspector, David Graves; dog control officer, Carolyn Robinson; coordinator of American Disability Act, James Krezmien; town historian, David Batterson; disaster coordinator, Michael Willibey; Freedom of Information officer, Darlene Schweikert.

The next regular meeting of the town of Concord board will be held on Feb. 13 at 7 p.m. at the Concord Town Hall.
