Jim Raulli, village director of parks and recreation, told the board of a committee he formed, the Summit Committee, to keep Manlius youth entertained.
Trustee Sandra Karas commended Raulli on bringing together what she called "disparate organizations" that otherwise would not be in communication with one another. Krouse inquired as to whether the organizations involved such as CLIC and Young Life would be willing to help out with village events for kids and teens.
"Perhaps we could have some additional coverage," Krouse said. The first teen night sponsored by the village in October resulted in grafitti in the village hall building due to unexpected high attendance and too few chaperones. The department of public works report indicated that winter planning is in effect. Dump trucks in the village are currently being converted to salt trucks and the village is receiving salt deliveries.
"Three Falls Woods," part of the Onondaga-Niagara Escarpment and New York Open Space plan will be discussed at upcoming board meetings for consideration as a Critical Environmental Zone. Designating the area as a CEZ would impose further restrictions on residential development on top of Local Law 2-2006, which the board approved on Oct. 10. A presentation will be made to board members and the interested public on Nov. 14 in the village library. The CEZ designation will be made through a public referendum at a date to be determined.
Board members adjourned to executive session to discuss a lease contract, hiring issues and contractual matters. The Manlius village board meets every second and fourth Tuesdays at 7 p.m. at the village hall.
