The Canastota Village Board met Monday Nov. 6 at the village offices.

At the meeting, village Historian David Sadler informed the board that the town of Lenox Anti-Slavery historical marker has been installed at the Quality Hill site. The marker celebrates the 170th anniversary of the anti-slavery group.

An official dedication will be held Dec. 7 at 10 a.m. The public is invited to attend.

Mayor Todd Rouse informed the board that he attended the ribbon cutting of Karns Business Services and said, "the business will be a nice addition to downtown."

Rouse also said the [Christmas] lights for the trees along downtown are in and the lights for the [tree by the Key Bank] will be installed on or before Nov. 20.

Also discussed was the waste water treatment plant. The mayor said the village continues to work with engineers and the DEC on future changes or upgrades at the plant. He said the project was still in the evaluation stages.

"We want to do it right the first time," Rouse said.

The board will meet again Monday, Nov. 20 at 7 p.m.
