CONCORD — A Concord town board meeting took place on Nov. 14, at the Concord Town Hall.
Highway Superintendent Dennis Dains announced, in his fire department report, “Our control center looks fantastic. The basic construction is completed, in regards to the remodeling. The county has also installed a new console, complete with electrical wiring. Once Verizon confirms their work order date, our operations will move back downstairs.
“The village, in conjunction with the senior dispatcher, proposes to conduct tours of the facility with the fire department. This project has come a long way, and this is a state-of-the-art facility,”
he added. “We are also in the process of tree trimming in the Crane Ridge Community of Glenwood; we are hoping for good weather for the outdoor work.”
Town Supervisor Gary Eppolito adopted a resolution stating that, “10463 South Cascade Drive, consisting of approximately 23.9 acres [within the village of Springville, town of Concord] shall be pending a 239 review by Erie County.” Eppolito added, “Erie County’s estimated review process is 30 days.”
Eppolito also addressed the board on the matter of the Springville Boys & Girls Club and their use of the town park for snowshoeing.
The diamond at the immediate right of the entrance had posed a problem, regarding baseballs which have been traveling over the fences and into people’s yards. The board proposed the use of a different diamond for baseball games or similar activities. As a result of that discussion, the board recommended a ban on using that diamond for baseball games; however, the Boys & Girls Club may still have use of the remaining town park, for other activities.
Marlene Meyers has been reappointed to the assessment board of review. Her term had ended in September 2013, and will continue through September of 2018.
Regarding the Crane Ridge Sewer project, a resolution was passed to accept the substantial completion and walkthrough with contractors and engineers. Eppolito also added, “We have accepted a change order to decrease the price paid to the contractor in the amount of $32,319, as recommended by our engineering firm.”
The total payment of roughly $92,500 shall be delivered to Nova Site Co., upon the signing and approval of receipt. This will protect both parties, regarding alteration of fees.
The Agricultural District Notification announced open enrollment and the acceptance of applications for agricultural land.
“The dates between Nov. 1 and Nov. 30, 2013, will be deemed as the annual 30-day period which landowners may submit request to include predominately viable agricultural land into an existing, certified district, as per the New York state section law,” confirmed councilwoman, Deborah King.
The Perkins trailer park on Middle Road has undergone final inspection, and permits were approved by the town board.
The next town board meeting will be held at the Concord Town Hall on Dec. 12 at 7 p.m.
